The Port of Valencia

The Port of Valencia is the leader in the Mediterranean Sea in container transport, with more than 5.4 million TEUs moved in 2019. Almost half of these movements are imports and exports, resulting in 2.5 million TEUs entering and leaving the hinterland of the port on a yearly basis.

The port of Valencia heads the ranking of the Top 10 Smart Ports of the Spanish port system. This position reaffirms the commitment of the Port Authority of Valencia (APV) to "strengthen its leadership position as a reference and strategic hub of the Mediterranean in the management of goods and traffic, its commitment to sustainability and the environment, digitalisation and transparency".

One of the significant challenges facing ports is the fight against climate change. Valenciaport wants to be ahead of the European timetables in order to achieve energy self-sufficiency and to adopt measures for decarbonisation as soon as possible. In short, the mission of valenciaport is to favour the sustainable mobility of people and goods and to foster the competitiveness of the surrounding industry through a competitive offer in quality and price of infrastructures and services.

The ambition of the COREALIS Incubator scheme is to foster the development of port-city innovation clusters by organizing a Hackathon in the Port of Valencia.

The Valenciaport Hackathon will combine academic knowledge and talent from entrepreneurs/start-ups with the port-logistics community to enable sustainable development of intelligent ports. This digital event is an extraordinary opportunity for the innovation ecosystem and will inspire the port-logistics industry to convert their ideas to concrete solutions.

COREALIS project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research & innovation programme under grant agreement No. 768994. Content reflects only the authors’ view and the European Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information it contains
