MIPIM 2021 Conference: Marseille pilot building under the spotlight
On the 7-8 September, our French partner Euroméditerranée took part to the MIPIM 2021, one of the leading international events for the real estate industry.
In this occasion, the rehabilitation project of the old factory “Savonnerie La Tulipe”, one of our pilot buildings in Marseille (Les Crottes) has been presented.
The industrial buildings will be rehabilitated and re-invested to create a living space and bring out facilities of collective interest. This project will integrate the HAPPEN methodology, aiming for at least 60% of energy savings in the buildings’ retrofit.
The rehabilitation project will be carried out by a group of companies led by the real-estate consulting firm Captown. It will include a cultural space, 40 apartments, a youth hostel and a hotel.

This summer, the HAPPEN project has joined the Horizon Results Booster initiative. Fully supported by the European Commission, it allows projects funded by FP7, H2020 and HE programmes to benefit from tailor-made expert support to build capacity for disseminating research results, increase their exploitation potential and improve access to markets.
Within the HAPPEN project, we will benefit from support on two specific issues, that are at the core of our strategy to maximise HAPPEN’ impact as the project reaches its final stage:
Improving the HAPPEN exploitation strategy to maximise the utilisation potential of our key results by stakeholders of the buildings renovation sector;
Shaping the HAPPEN business plan to bring our results closer to the market.
Next week, the 8th and 10th September, the HAPPEN partners will gather online for a workshop with the Horizon Results Booster expert, aimed at refining the exploitation strategy of our key results.
