At the end of the day, the stakeholders signed around the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce (CCINCA), the project leader, the Port Center commitment charter under the aegis of the International Association of Cities and Ports (AIVP).

The three workshops proposed around the heritage of Mediterranean port sites and issues of transmission, attractiveness and competitiveness of port territories led to a commitment by the initiators to create a Port Center Côte d’Azur.

Following the example of Lorient, Le Havre and Genoa, which have provided their feedback, the Ports Center are asserting themselves today and for the future as essential tools for sharing a maritime culture. Thus, all knowledge and all economic and human activities are destined to be made more accessible through the Port Center. The professionals present (Monaco Marine, Nice-Cannes Pilot Station, ECPY) unanimously recognised the usefulness of this tool to increase knowledge of maritime activities among a wide audience (economic and environmental impacts of the sector, future professions, information on current projects, etc.).

Aware of the need to move forward together in this initiative, the participants called for the launch in 2020 of a digital Platform where all the educational, professional and scientific content of the territorial ecosystem will converge.
