Julia and Susie headed to sunny Marseille for a two day workshop on the city’s impressive urban regeneration scheme. The workshop was held at the dockside offices of Euroméditerranée – the largest urban renewal project in Europe. A joint initiative of national government and local organizations, Euroméditerranée is charged with the ambitious goal of redeveloping and growing Marseille to such a degree that it becomes recognized as one of Europe’s major cities.
Over the next year, the 21c team will work alongside colleagues at Items International to help promote Marseille’s growing digital hub to ICT and digital media companies across Europe. With a wide array of affordable serviced office space, strong business support services and tax incentives to promote local job creation, the Belle de Mai Media Cluster in Marseille offers ICT and digital content companies of all sizes a gateway to Europe and the Mediterranean.
