AIVP takes part in the first French Maritime Engineering Meeting
On the initiative of Cerema (an AIVP member) and the Works and Construction Engineers’ High School, the first French Maritime Engineering Meeting was recently held in Caen. AIVP took part in the opening round table of the meeting. AIVP Director General, Bruno Delsalle, had the opportunity to raise various topics which are in our association’s DNA. He talked about the complexity of the port city ecosystem and the multiplicity of stakeholders, as well as the necessity of dialogue with city populations. It appears that the social acceptability of large-scale maritime engineering works is more and more frequently a critical factor for companies in the industry.

The theme of the 17th World Conference : Inspiring Blue Futures
With the concept of “Inspiring Blue Futures”, AIVP wants to highlight the importance of port cities in this mission and several subjects for the future of our societies, our economy and our environment. In our conference we will see how these Blue Futures will be characterized by innovative solutions for decarbonized logistic chains and port cities, building on alternative fuels and electrification of infrastructure, marine renewable energies, digitalization, or even carbon capture based on aquatic nature (the best carbon sinks are wetlands and the seabed).
