Health issues related to waste and wastewater around storm-water disposal have been included in the remit of the project. To strengthen technical capacities in the field of sanitation and hydraulic expertise, a management training programme has been set up in partnership between ENGEES (Ecole Nationale du Génie de l'Eau et de l'Environnement de Strasbourg) and the Institut Universitaire de Technologie (IUT) de Douala.
Developing an “Urban BIM” data valorisation strategy: the digital avatar of the city at the centre of a multi-scale process, ranging from building BIM to territorial BIM, industrialising the use of data around third-party services. This approach opens up a new dimension in the management and visualisation of territorial data. The multi-scale approach helps us to better conceive the urban environment, understand the integration of buildings into complex environments (smart grids and eco-districts) and cross-check data (urban and building scale). The multi-domain approach enables the modelling of estate management, socio-demographic data, data on transport and networks.
CheckMyCity enables a city’s digital maturity to be assessed and the level of harmony between services offered to citizens and the DNA and political priorities of the local authority to be highlighted. This diagnosis makes it possible to quickly identify new ideas for services and directions for digital development. It is a tool designed to support reflection and decision making.
ASSETS OF THE DIAGNOSIS
- A corpus of more than 300 questions on 18 themes covering the city’s jurisdiction as a whole.
- A 360-degree view of the city’s digital development.
- A modular diagnosis with variable geometry according to the context.
Prediction of the impact of urbanization and climate change on ecosystemic services (water and soil)
Astuce & Tic is a unique network of experts bringing together scientific researchers, economists and engineers specializing in agronomy, water and soil resources, and information technology.
Thanks to models available for spatial and dynamic simulation of the environment, Astuce & Tic brings a dimension of prospection, which is indispensable for decision-making tools in order to anticipate and minimize foreseeable effects of territorial development policies along with the integration of climate change impacts. It is a tool to assist public authorities and stakeholders of a given territory towards decision making.

- La définition du cahier des charges de la méthode à partir des analyses et des données disponibles, des domaines et leviers d’...
The consortium federating the CSTB, Elioth, l’Alliance HQE-GBC, Efficacity, Effinergie, Certivéa, l’Association BBCA and Atlantech recently won the call for research projects during ADEME’s 4th edition of: «Towards responsible buildings before 2020».
Quartier E+C-, the winning project, aims to develop and test a carbon energy assessment method at the neighbourhood level.
The project will revolve around three stages:
- The definition of the method specifications based on available analyses and data, the areas and levers of actions required to evaluate existing projects and tools or methodologies, by Efficacity, Effinergie and the HQE – GBC Alliance by the beginning of 2019;
- The elaboration of the method: on this basis, CSTB, which coordinates the whole project and ensures its scientific coherence, will initiate the development of an evaluation method in parallel with the collection of the data necessary for its application; a definition of the relevant and realistic performance targets according to the context (climate, uses, density, existing infrastructures, temporality, costs...) will be driven by Elioth;
- Implementation of the methodology developed on pilot projects and capitalization of the feedback will be coordinated by Certivéa.
This method will be tested on 8 pilot projects.
Efficacity et la Banque des territoires ont signé à l’automne 2017 un partenariat de R&D pour une période de trois ans dans le but de définir la méthodologie d’évaluation ex post du Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir (PIA) Ville de demain (VDD).
Afin d'être au plus près des attentes des commanditaires et des porteurs de projet, la mission menée par Efficacity en 2016 et 2017 a été conduite dans une logique de concertation des acteurs de l’Etat et des ÉcoCités via des entretiens et des ateliers. Cette démarche a permis de co-construire la méthode d'évaluation et d’en assurer la pertinence, la simplicité, l'...
After developing the ex post evaluation methodology for the PIA VDD (programme of investments for innovation to build the City of tomorrow, also called EcoCité approach) for Caisse des Dépôts over 2016-2017, Efficacity has now signed up to a three-year R&D partnership designed to support the ex post evaluation of EcoCités territories.
In order to be closer to the expectations of the sponsors and the project holders, the mission led by Efficacity in 2016 and 2017 was conducted in a logic of concertation of the actors of the state and the ÉcoCités via interviews and workshops. This approach has allowed to co-construct the evaluation method and to ensure its relevance, simplicity, ownership and practicality for its future users.
The evaluation of the efficiency and leverage of the Cities of Tomorrow program is based on an evaluation of the performance of the financed actions, their replicability and their impact on the territory.
These research results are intended to be communicated widely and to benefit in particular to all the actors of the network of EcoCités – City of tomorrow.
Mis à disposition gratuite des villes et collectivités d’Europe début 2013, le RFSC (Reference framework for sustainable european city) propose un cadre de référence pour l’élaboration de stratégies territoriales et de projets urbains qui prennent en compte, de manière intégrée, les quatre dimensions du développement durable. Fruit de quatre ans de travail entre 17 pays, dont le Cerema a été la cheville ouvrière technique, il offre une aide en ligne à la mise en œuvre des principes de la durabilité dans les politiques et actions locales.

Le label Ecoquartier est une démarche volontaire d’urbanisme durable organisé par la DGALN et portée à l’échelle des quartiers par les collectivités, les EPCI, bailleurs ou associations de citoyens... Initialement créé dans le contexte du Grenelle de l’Environnement, il participe à encourager l’engagement des collectivités territoriales en faveur des Ecoquartiers, sur 4 dimensions (démarche et processus, cadre de vie et usages, développement territorial, environnement et climat), évaluées par une commission régionale composée des services administratifs ou experts de la ville durable au niveau régional. Ce guide présente la démarche...
The “Ecoquartier” label, a contraction of the two French words “écologique” and “quartier” (ecological neighbourhood), is a voluntary sustainable urban planning approach organised by the Directorate General for Planning, Housing and Nature (DGALN) under the French Ministry for Ecological and Solidary Transition. It was promoted at the neighbourhood level by local authorities, Public Establishments for Inter-Communal Cooperation (EPCIs), lessors or citizens’ associations. Originally created as part of the Grenelle Forum on the Environment, it helps to encourage the commitment of local authorities to eco-districts based on 4 dimensions, namely approach and process, living conditions and uses, territorial development, environment and climate. It is assessed by a regional commission made up of administrative services or experts on regional sustainable cities.
This guide presents the Ecoquartier approach and labelling process. It is addressed to all its stakeholders.
SUEZ group, in partnership with the Saint-Etienne municipality, was awarded the “Sustainable and United City” Call for Expression of Interest by the National Agency for Urban Renovation (ANRU) within the framework of the Future Investments Program (PIA). SUEZ is developing a next-generation interoperable, open and scalable digital platform that will facilitate citizens’ access to public data while providing the city with quality information. The “Digital Saint-Etienne” system meets the needs of citizens, elected officials, professionals and the municipality in terms of galvanizing the social and economic fabric of the community. The platform has been rolled out in the Tarentaize-Beaubrun-Couriot neighborhood and its appeal to students and citizens was tested during a hackathon in March 2018; it will be installed and in operation by the end of 2018.
