Make City Port spaces hubs for innovation
In addition to the symbolic value of transforming previously abandoned areas into the City Port’s most innovative places, transitional spaces between the city and port are good locations for creative districts and innovation hubs in a world where responsiveness, forward-thinking, and flexibility are increasingly necessary.
In Rotterdam there are several innovative initiatives related to food. In the Maasvlakte, the port authority is creating the Food Hub occupying 60 Ha to improve the logistics of fresh and frozen products. The municipality created the Food Cluster gathering companies, institutions and research centers to develop innovative solutions for the sector.
