Seizing the opportunities of the new "third industrial revolution" model in urban renewal projects
Dans l’histoire récente, des révolutions industrielles se sont produites lorsque se sont conjuguées de nouvelles sources d’énergie et de nouveaux moyens de communication. Après la 1ère révolution industrielle à la fin du XIXème siècle issue de l’invention de la machine à vapeur et de l’exploitation du charbon, après la 2ème révolution industrielle d’après-guerre née de l’usage généralisé de l’électricité, du pétrole, du téléphone et de la télévision, nous sommes entrés dans la troisième révolution industrielle des énergies renouvelables et des technologies numériques.
 
Telle est la théorie élaborée...
In recent history, industrial revolutions have occurred when new sources of energy and new means of communication have come together. After the first industrial revolution at the end of the 19th century resulting from the invention of the steam engine and the exploitation of coal, and after the second post-war industrial revolution born from the widespread use of electricity, oil, telephone and television, we entered the third industrial revolution of renewable energies and digital technologies.
 
Such is the theory elaborated by American economist Jeremy Rifkin. Finding a particular echo in the north of France, given the economic, social and environmental legacy of the past century, this third industrial revolution has become a unifying vision for the future. Called "rev3" in the Hauts-de-France, this model is based on:
 
  • Renewable energies
  • Energy storage
  • Internet of energy and digital technologies
  • Positive energy buildings
  • Innovative mobilities
  • Circular economy
  • Economy of functionality
  • Energy sobriety
With the aim of preserving the environment while developing employment, this new model finally goes beyond industry alone and also questions the way cities are designed and regions developed.
 
In neighbourhoods identified today as requiring urban renewal, this rev3 is fully consistent with the objectives pursued.
The planning and development agency of the Flanders-Dunkirk region (AGUR), in partnership with the Regional Council of Hauts-de-France, has thus produced a series of notebooks that can be mobilised as resources devoted to the incorporation of rev3 in urban renewal projects, like the projects carried out by the Urban Council of Dunkirk.
The digital web of South Alsace: benchmarks, stakeholders and digital issues applied to the industries of the future
Le numérique se diffuse à l’ensemble de l’économie. Si certaines activités sont strictement numériques assurant par exemple des activités informatiques ou de l’édition de logiciels, le numérique se retrouve aussi dans de nombreuses activités telles l’automatique industrielle, l’installation et la maintenance de lignes de production…
 
Au final, les technologies numériques se déploient, comme une toile, dans l’ensemble de l’économie.
L’enjeu, pour le territoire, est double. D’une part, il s’agit de faciliter la numérisation des entreprises industrielles. D’autre part, il s’agit de...
Digital technology is spreading to the economy as a whole. While some activities are strictly digital, such as computer activities or software publishing, digital is also found in many activities such as industrial automation, installation and maintenance of production lines and so on.
 
Ultimately, digital technologies are being deployed, like a web, throughout the economy.
The stakes for the region are two-fold. On the one hand, it is a question of facilitating the digitisation of industrial enterprises. On the other, it is about developing new activities, bringing added value and shaping the future.
 
This study provides an overview of this new ecosystem and the distribution of the roles of each local stakeholder in this "digital web".
