For more than twenty years, the Etablissement Public d'Aménagement Euroméditerranée (EPAEM) has been designing, developing and building the sustainable Mediterranean city of tomorrow at the heart of the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis.
The operation of national interest, piloted by the State and local authorities, concentrates more than 37,000 private jobs and 6,500 public jobs within its perimeter and has led to the establishment of more than 5,300 companies.
The 480-hectare development project, located in the heart of Marseille, France's second largest city, includes public facilities, shops, offices, housing, transportation and parking facilities, urban parks, etc., in order to promote community living.
Today, Euroméditerranée is the third largest business district in France.
But Euroméditerranée's vocation extends beyond the international business district and its 650,000 square meters of office space. Indeed, piece by piece, the puzzle is falling into place, interweaving public and private facilities, commercial offerings, residential buildings, transportation and parking infrastructures, parks and public spaces. However, the operation led by the public institution is not yet complete. It is now continuing on 170 hectares north of the initial 310 hectares, and is entering a new phase.
Labeled an "EcoCity", the development operation is intended to be a territory for experimenting with sustainable urban development in order to test, deploy and develop innovative services and technologies to simultaneously meet the challenges of connectivity, comfort, quality of life, overall cost control and environmental performance.
To support its ambition, Euroméditerranée has opened up to all innovative companies and created MED'INNOVANT more than ten years ago: a competition for innovative solutions that accelerates the development of eco-innovative projects from startups that are able to respond to issues in line with the new development and sustainability imperatives of Mediterranean territories.
EPAEM is developing a global open innovation approach that encompasses the following fields
MED'INNOVANT is a competition for innovative solutions - organized by the Etablissement Public d'Aménagement Euroméditerranée (EPAEM, https://www.euromediterranee.fr/) - that accelerates the development of eco-innovative projects by startups that are able to respond to issues in line with the new development and sustainability imperatives of Mediterranean territories.
MED'INNOVANT is part of an operational vision for the implementation, in the short or medium term, of test projects and demonstrators in the Euroméditerranée EcoCity (480 hectares in the heart of Marseille, France's 2nd largest city) and more broadly in the Aix Marseille Provence metropolitan area (https://www.euromediterranee.fr/ecocite-euromediterranee).
This competition brings together industrial partners - including ENGIE from the outset - who support the developer in its OPEN INNOVATION approach and who want to meet innovative and creative entrepreneurs !
