Masterclass: the major challenges of #Smartcity

On February 8th, French Tech Central joins forces with Impulse Partners to run a masterclass on Smart City issues. The Caisse des Dépôts Consignations, the CNES and 3 start-ups will contribute their expertise and present concrete examples.


Cities are changing. Data, new forms of mobility, traffic management, biodiversity, eco-neighbourhoods, energy, citizens… Cities are becoming more complex, more and more attractive and are at the heart of environmental issues.

As private and public actors, many of us are thinking about the city of tomorrow and wondering what the cities of the future will look like. How can you contribute your expertise? How can we contribute to this intelligent and sustainable city to make it a real field for experimentation? What are the business opportunities for entrepreneurs?

At a time when the citizen debate must be placed at the heart of societies, meet us on February 8 at 2:30 pm at French Tech Central, Station F, for a masterclass that will bring together different specialists in Smart City to exchange points of view and open up reflections.

This event will also be the opportunity to officially launch the Smart City Lab, Impulse Partners’ new ecosystem of innovations around the design, construction and operation of infrastructure, services and common goods for cities.
