The purpose of the maritime industry and technology pavilion is to introduce visitors to the maritime industry and to show the challenges it represents and will represent in the future, both in terms of job creation and in the use of raw materials and energy from the oceans.

The problems caused by the over-consumption of fossil fuels, food shortages, etc. are highlighted as an introduction, followed by a presentation of the fields of application and the latest technologies linked to marine resources, such as the manufacture of plastics, textiles, fuel and foodstuffs.....

Algae are also given pride of place and are presented as the product of the future, for food, energy production (bioethanol) and materials as well as for the production of pharmaceutical products.

Computer-generated films and numerous presentations explain the latest innovations and future visions to visitors.
