MEDports Forum, 29 novembre, Villa Méditerrannée, Marseille

Dominique Lebreton, MGI Audits, Projects and Marketing Director, will speak at Session 2 (Security and Environment) of the MEDports Forum, at 2pm on 29 November at Villa Méditerranée in Marseille.

Data sharing is a lever for port development with a view to establishing common standards across the Mediterranean. The data supplied by Port Community Systems is shared and used by professionals while still meeting the security requirements of ports and public administrations .

Dominique will use a forward-looking approach and real-life examples to show how collaborative actions driven by data management support the transition of Mediterranean ports towards the Smart Port concept.

Intermed Gateways, in cooperation with the Union for the Mediterranean Secretariat, is organising this first forum for Mediterranean ports. It will bring together around 80 people, such as port authorities from the Euro-Mediterranean region, specialists and other players, in order to promote shipping in the Mediterranean Sea and highlight the major role of the Mediterranean as a strategic hub for all maritime routes. Various ports will be represented, including Marseille-Fos, Barcelona, Genoa, Savona, Rome, La Spezia, Koper, Burgas, Algeciras, Thessaloniki, Tunis, Venice, Alexandria, Tarragona, Israel.
