Abstract

An EU research project (Mediterranean Eco-Industrial Development-MEID) which involves different actors from six Mediterranean regions is currently in progress. Its objective is to provide a decision support tool (model) to plan, build and govern more competitive Sustainable Industrial Areas (SIA) in this region. Indeed, well planned and equipped Industrial Areas (IAs) stimulate the relocation of industries and help to relieve congestion and pollution in metropolitan areas. In order to correspond to a coherent solution a SWOT analysis of several target IAs is performed. Following its results, it is possible to define the most relevant aspects aiming at sustainability of IAs in the Mediterranean area. In this paper the general context and the first results of the MEID project are presented.
