The project will have three distinct components: Entrepreneurship and blue bioeconomy, innovation and ocean research, and access to water.

It will also be a pole of attraction for entrepreneurs, researchers and technicians of national and international excellence in the maritime field, startups and existing maritime companies, a key infrastructure for collaboration and multidisciplinary interaction between business and entrepreneurial activities and scientific knowledge.
