Biography

Maurice Jansen, MSc. is a senior researcher and business developer at Erasmus UPT. As a business expert, he specializes in Strategic Management and Environment. Maurice is a real connector and he puts the human factor and human capital at the centre of port-city development.

Maurice likes to find the ‘tensions’ in port cities. Where the port and the city rub against each other there is dynamism, conflicts arise, but there is also room for creativity.

Expertise

At Erasmus UPT Maurice concentrates on issues such as:

• How can ports and port cities develop sustainably, thereby striking a balance between economic and social values.

• The development of innovative education solutions which helps professionals worldwide to excel in the dynamic problems that ports and port cities face.

Maurice is an expert in the following research themes:

• Port-City crossovers.

• Inclusive (social and sustainable) port development.

• Coordination mechanisms in port partnerships.

• Serious gaming in the port, shipping and logistics.

• Zero waste supply chains.

Maurice considers ports and port cities as breeding grounds for talent, innovation and entrepreneurship. From this perspective, he supports policy and initiatives that lead to a breakthrough in unruly port and port city issues.
