Civic Tech refers to all associative or entrepreneurial projects using technologies to improve the political system and strengthen the democratic link between citizens and (local) government(s). These initiatives aim to make public action more transparent and accessible as well as increasing the power of civil society.

To federate citizens’ energies and foster collective intelligence;
To inform citizens about the life of the city and be connected with shops, the stops of the various modes of public transport, information panels, car parks and even cultural programming;
To value the work of the community and simplify the process of communication between citizens and public services;
To use notifications, especially "by interest groups", allowing the municipality to better target its messages according to each person's interests.
