Our 

Mission &

Vision

 

 

 

 

 

 

NextPort vCoE INC. was created in response to the need of having an independent research group that, in an ethical and sustainable way, addresses port data governance and management challenges in diverse ecoregions and maritime clusters. Within the framework of this group, we integrate several approaches to offer research, advice, training, and policy services for the entire port and maritime sector.

 

Our commitment is based on research and technical experience on data analyses, business intelligent capabilities, and artificial intelligence solutions, working in a truly collaborative environment. Working with our strategic partners for the year 2025 we will position ourselves as the leader of high impact in port research and innovative services in the sector.
