The Urban Lab unveils the 15 winning projects of the Urban Innovation Districts 3rd edition

#Évènement #Expérimentation

Today the Urban Lab, Paris&Co's urban innovation platform, and its partners unveiled the winning solutions for the "Paris Rive Gauche" Urban Innovation District (13th). While the aim of this urban experimentation approach is to test innovative projects in real conditions, it is also an illustration of a very concrete collaboration between public and private players, including residents. Ultimately, these projects will help improve the living environment of Parisians and strengthen the attractiveness, resilience and simplicity of city living.


Announced in the form of an urban walk, reinvented for the occasion in digital format, the 15 winning projects of this third edition are illustrated in 3 new themes: "Produce, consume and transform on a local scale", "Vegetate and refresh the city" and "Reinforce the accessibility and mobility of the region".


Anticipation, confrontation with the field and users, co-construction between public and private actors, reversibility... What if urban experimentation heralds a new approach to city living? Make up your own mind: watch the replay of the event and listen to our new series of podcasts focused on this third edition.
