Marseilles: a new future for J1

The Port of Marseilles has decided to launch a call for projects for J1, the last shipping warehouse in the La Joliette sector. It currently houses exhibitions in the framework of Marseille, European Capital of Culture. Future uses for the 25,000 m2 space on three levels are undecided, but three possibilities are open: third party, research and events, all of which must illustrate the “Port-City” concept. For the moment, the only uses decided on are the head office of the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille (GPMM) and the superyacht industry.

Awareness of the maritime knowledge ecosystem will be an advantage for port cities in the 21st century

Researcher Maurice Jansen, well known to AIVP, is convinced of it. Future demographic growth in coastal areas and port cities will force them to adopt an increasingly holistic management approach to become true maritime capitals. Mapping the ecosystem of maritime knowledge production in the Port City, and maximizing the potential of that human capital, will be key to their success and their ability to adapt to change.

Whether vertical or horizontal, port cooperation remains a key priority

Many ports are currently looking at establishing closer ties with operators in their hinterlands, in some cases even developing their own terminals there or seeking cooperation with neighbouring or complementary ports.
