Smart Cities: where ICTs, urban services, and the environment come together
Our cities are undergoing some profound changes. And urban populations are growing worldwide. To conserve resources and ensure the quality of life urban dwellers demand, cities will need shift to more responsible, efficient systems.
The Smart City is a new vision for the cities of tomorrow, one where technological innovation will drive the emergence of new uses for technology and powerful new services-all while making more efficient use of our planet’s resources.
Powerful new urban services
Tomorrow’s cities will offer powerful new urban services for transportation, buildings, energy, natural resource and waste management, and more.…
The Smart City market is booming. Strong growth is bringing with it opportunities for existing businesses to develop new products and services and for new businesses to launch! The market is ripe for new technological innovations that will help cities support tomorrow’s powerful urban services and facilitate the transformation to the Smart City model.
The Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region is fully engaged in the Smart City movement
Cities across the region are poised to make the shift, building and testing their own Smart City models.

In the Isère district, coordinated local initiatives are underway to make the area a “living lab” for tomorrow’s Smart Cities.
