“Building the smart city of the future together”
Presentation morning at the Plaine Commune Co-working space
#TerriNum, a forecasting centre, is studying digital uses by local Plaine Commune actors in partnership with the Paris 8 University’s IDEFI-CréaTIC program of excellence. Feedback on the first territorial diagnostics phase, undertaken between March and July 2015.
Speech by Ghislaine Azemard at the TerriNum presentation on 3 November 2015
“Meeting the needs of citizens, residents and users” was the challenge set by Mauna Traikia, delegate Community Councillor for the territory Digital Development’s at Plaine Commune. Plaine Commune’s ICT project manager, Alain Vaucelle, supports this ambition by saying that the project must “put people at the heart of digital issues”.
The university partner for this IDEFI-CRéaTIC project, represented by Ghislaine Azemard, its director, has spoken of the importance of working collaboratively “We cannot envisage future scenarios independently, co-building between partners must take place”.
Valeria Young, project manager, has identified three areas following the surveys on the ground:
– Area 1: A city, a region, serving its citizens and civil society
Thinking of digital technology as a way of improving relations with the public service, of interacting with public policies, or even of opening data (open data) are all working areas.
– Area 2: A city, a region serving sustainable development
Improving transport (soft transport modes, car-sharing, etc.), promoting home-working or using the skills and expertise of people and users, of associations and not for profit organisations are areas to look at.
– Area 3: A city, a region, serving endogenous and exogenous economic development
Optimising equipment (networks, furniture and security), developing shared workspaces, invigorating the local economy, offering turnkey tools to VSEs are points identified during this diagnosis.
Additional areas were cited to a lesser extent: digital tools serving culture and creativity; digital tools in the health service.
