Smart City & territorial dynamisation

After two annual studies on the municipalities' understanding of the Smart City phenomenon and their state of progress in this area, this third survey also addresses a new theme: territorial dynamisation. Does the Smart City contribute to improve the attractiveness of our municipalities and how ?
This study therefore provides some insights around :
  • The degree of importance given by our municipalities to economic, social and touristic dynamisation;
  • The strategic actors to attract or retain according to municipalities;
  • Actions developed in terms of territorial dynamisation and Smart City approaches;
  • Smart City actions to be developed to reinforce the dynamism of the municipalities.
Finally, this survey has allowed us to highlight the actions undertaken by our municipalities in terms of Smart City approach, following the 2018 municipal elections.
