How is this course conceived and what does it offer?

A balanced mix of theory and practice

In addition to theoretical presentations to introduce the different concepts, this continuing education course, which is very practical, also offers presentations of best practices, workshops, practical exercises and case studies.

5 days composed of 10 modules (09:00 - 17:00), with

  • a high quality theoretical and practical contribution thanks to the intervention of an academic speaker and a practitioner speaker. Discover our academic experts in the brochure 
  • case studies and concrete illustrations
  • topics and themes adapted to the needs and problems detected among our target audiences
  • one mandatory reading per module, to be read beforehand in order to prepare the face-to-face session and thus allow a better understanding of the subject.
  • a list of complementary scientific articles, accessible to participants who wish to continue to deepen their knowledge in this field

Practical projects

The participants will work in multidisciplinary groups throughout the training to address concrete issues encountered in Smart Cities approaches. These projects will be proposed and chosen by the participants during the first day.

3 days of creativity

In order to help the participants to move forward in their practical projects, think "out of the box" and provide them with the tools necessary to concretise and finalise them. 

Presentation of the final projects

To the speakers and experts of the course, followed by a networking moment.

Creation of a community

For content sharing and experiences exchange between participants and the Smart City Institute.
