MARSEILLE ATTRACTIVE 2012 – 2020
A PARTNERSHIP STRATEGY PROJECT
Adopted by the city council on the 12th of December 2011, the Marseille Attractive plan defines the strategy for the economic attractiveness of the City of Marseille looking ahead to 2020: The institutional and private partners of the Marseille Metropolis are encouraged to rise and meet a new challenge built on the identity and assets of the territory. Marseille enjoys a unique geostrategic position within Europe.
As the first port of France and the Mediterranean and the third largest port in the world for the oil trade, the “Phocean City” is the established bridgehead of Europe within the Mediterranean.
As the second diplomatic seat in France, Marseille has successfully played the hand of international relations, making its mark as a recognised para-diplomatic centre. A status that has resulted in the presence of numerous international organisations (Marseille Center for Mediterranean Integration, UNIDO, World Water Council, World Bank antenna…).
Marseille’s specific assets are: those of a city recognised as a business centre and an exchange platform for Southern Europe.
Marseille Provence, a capital of creative force
With the growth of the globalised economy, regional competition is now fought out among major metropolitan areas. Marseille Provence has set itself the goal of becoming one of Europe’s TOP 20 metropolitan areas. Strategic priorities concerning economic development have been redefined to achieve this ambition. This reaches beyond the purely administrative boundaries of the Urban Community, for the influence of a whole region depends on the success and economic vitality of the Marseille Provence Métropole area.
Marseille Provence is the second metropolitan area in France. With the great seaport of Marseille Fos – the Mediterranean’s number one port – and a dense network of infrastructure and logistic platforms, Marseille has become one of the Euro-Mediterranean region’s leading decision-making centres and an international hub for services and trade in goods. In recent years, this position has been consolidated through the creation of high added-value services and a world-class offer in the tertiary sector within the area covered by the Euroméditerranée urban development project – an operation of national interest. This has put the knowledge economy at the heart of development initiatives.
With an eye on innovation, the Marseille Provence area is building its development on a diversified economy and industry that works hand-in-hand with centres of excellence in higher education and research and eleven high-tech clusters. The three universities of Aix-Marseille have merged to create what will be one of Europe’s foremost universities. This move is part of the ‘Campus Plan’ backed by the Urban Community. The technology parks in the Marseille Provence Métropole area are perfect for bringing together industry, research and higher education and play an important role in promoting innovative projects.
A major tourist destination and cultural centre, Marseille Provence is keen to build a sustainable economy around these sectors, without turning its back on its history, and to promote its natural surroundings and lifestyle, now recognised the world over. The city is also one of southern Europe’s leading centres for business tourism and international events, and has been chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2013.
This strategy is an integral part of the Urban Community’s overall plan to improve its residents’ quality of life in terms of sustainable development, transport, housing, retail and, of course, employment.

Many technologies, such as electronic components, secure telecommunications, on-board systems and digital content make France and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region key areas for the development of ICT.
In Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, four main sectors stand out: microelectronics (9,000 jobs / 530 establishments), telecommunications (11,000 FTE staff / almost 1,300 firms), software & services (21,000 FTE staff / almost 8,400 firms) and media (13,000 FTE staff / almost 12,000 firms). These alone represent almost 55,000 jobs and more than 14 billion € in turnover, in the core business.
Taken all together, ICT accounts for close to 77,000 jobs in 30,000 establishments, with, outside the core business, related activities (with 11,000 jobs and almost 7,000 establishments) and R&D (with almost 11,000 jobs and 400 establishments).
On the seven key technologies of ICT, the region has a global profile. In eight others, it is among the French leaders. It also boasts transverse skills (robotics and intelligent manufacturing).
Many markets have had their growth boosted by the new technologies. Through the diversity of its economy, the region is rightly home to a high number of sectors / markets where ICT plays a key role. This proximity between producers and consumers of ICT offers synergies on which the region must capitalise.
Finally, we find a whole network for the development of ICT. This is a network of data (fixed and mobile), of people (clustering, particularly around SCS and PRIMI), of facilitators, of researchers (1,500 scientists in the public sector, 11,000 private), of laboratories (25 specialists, 37 related), of facilities (25) and of courses (500 courses, 10,000 students).
So the region can pride itself on its ambition to develop businesses around digital technology, transmedia, broadband networks, smart devices, security, and cloud technology. Further opportunities may be in the offing, around the software industry, which runs across all the others. Very naturally aimed at uses, it can also envisage market opportunities in its main economic sectors.
