IS A ‘DO’ CAMPUS & COMMUNITY WHERE BUSINESS, TECHNOLOGY & KNOWLEDGE ARE LINKED TO STRENGTHEN AND FURTHER DEVELOP THE MARITIME SECTOR. IT’S A PLACE WHERE COMPANIES COME TOGETHER TO COOPERATE, INNOVATE AND CREATE NEW SOLUTIONS TO APPLY THEM IN A VERY PRACTICAL WAY

MCA will be a new public hotspot in Antwerp where everyone can have something to eat and drink while relaxing and experiencing the maritime sector.

The aim of MCA is to connect entrepreneurs who develop sustainable and water-related businesses. MCA Community is broad and focuses on joining forces between the various actors in the maritime sector at European level.

MCA Campus accommodates organisations ranging from larger companies to start-ups, educational and research institutions. Several facilities are made available for this purpose: co-working spaces, project spaces but also several R&D halls, labs and
studios.

Sustainability is one of the pillars of MCA: making shipping clean and sustainable. MCA Campus shows the way by transforming an old industrial area into a sustainable, future-proof and innovative site with a mix of economic activities and a public hotspot, surrounded by nature.

Because co-creation and innovation are part of MCA’s DNA, the facilities are designed to enable exactly that. Great quality, hospitality services and a stimulating community create a stimulating environment for people to be creative.
