Two types of profiles are distinguished in the selection of experts: on the one hand, experts from the field in one of the thematic areas of work who have allowed us to broaden the research focus and apply the lessons from their experience to the specific case of ports. On the other hand, there are people who are directly linked to the port context through their research or professional activities and who have brought experience from different contexts and port communities around the world.
