Audacities : Innovating and governing in the real digital city
Digital technology has taken over cities, but not at all in the way told by the “smart city” scenario. It has indeed deeply transformed the city dwellers’ life and the functioning of some urban services, but it did so outside of any existing strategy of actors working in the field of urbanism, and particularly public authorities. The project looks at identifying, through case study analyses, the stakes of collaborating for the new digital actors and traditional actors, notably local communities.

Based on the experience of its members, the French Network for Sustainable City (IVD) has come up with 6 proposals to accelerate the deployment of sustainable cities in all contexts, notably by improving city governance and innovation support.
