The sea, both channel for exchanges, strategic political issue, as well as energy and food resource, is one of the key elements of the future global development.
The Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur Region has the relevant assets to meet these challenges, as much due to its position in the Mediterranean arch as on its North-South exchange axis. It has the ambition of playing a significant role in the definition and the implementation of an efficient maritime and solidarity policy in the Mediterranean.
Since its creation in 2005, the PACA Marine Competitivity Centre has decided to focuse its action on the sustainable development and safety, with five themes:
- Maritime security and safety
- Ship and nautical industry
- Marine energy resources
- Marine biological resources
- Environment and coastal management
