The « Pôle mer » (The Sea Pole)
Articulated around the natural harbor, the Techno Park of the Sea specializes in the fields of safety, maritime security and sustainable development based on marine and submarine high technologies. In these fields, Toulon and the surrounding municipalities appear among the most attractive European economic sites.
A globally oriented pole dedicated to the sea
Toulon and its partners appear in the group of the few French poles with global competitiveness (8th out of 71) under the title "Sea Pole, Maritime Safety and Security, Sustainable development". With more than 17 million euros, the urban community brings a major financial support for the engineering and animation team of the pole to help new companies set-up.
In 2012, the PACA Sea-pole of Toulon was recognized "very successful" after an evaluation ranking it 13th best out of the 71 French poles. The stated goal of this investment is to generate 3,000 jobs.
