“MEDIALAND” Living Lab – Issy-les-Moulineaux

Since the early 90’s, Issy has developed a proactive policy to build a local information society, innovative and inclusive, and which led the City to shift from a post industrial to a digital-oriented town showing high indicator of wealth. The strategy adopted is to follow the developments of new technologies benefiting the population across the country but also to implement, stimulate and foster innovation in the City. copyright_DidierBlavette-Altelia Issy is a cluster for Innovation. Thanks to an accurate economic strategy, Issy hosts various international groups such as Microsoft, Cisco, as well as many start-ups skilled on ICT, Internet of things and Robotics as EMBIX, Aldebaran and Withings.

Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) Curitiba, ParanáFew places on earth so convincingly demonstrate the power of enlightened urban planning over time as this city on Brazil’s high agricultural plains.

It has a per-capita income 86% higher than the Brazilian average, thriving industrial and tourist sectors, and an exploding technology offshoring industry experiencing a 40% annual growth. More than 3,500 companies offer services including IT infrastructure, software development, technical support, systems implementation and enterprise applications. From 1975 to 1995, its GDP grew nearly 50% more than the national average. Yet while other Brazilian cities have welcomed heavy industry, Curitiba accepted only non-polluters and developed an industrial district with so much green space that it was derided as a “golf course” until it filled up with major businesses.

Beginning in the 1970s, the master plan laid out streets, public transportation, shopping, industrial and residential areas. Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) In 1997, the government of Issy-les-Moulineaux, a suburb of Paris, made a revolutionary decision: to outsource its entire information technology (IT) infrastructure to Euriware, a 10-year-old Paris company that was one of France’s first outsourcing firms.

If this had been simply an e-government project, however, it would not have attracted attention throughout France and around the world. What made it notable was its role in transforming Issy-le-Moulineaux into what Mayor Andre Santini, a former French Minister of Communications, calls a “digital city.” In the mid-1990s, Mr. Santini had already launched a campaign to lure technology companies into the area and make high-tech the backbone of the economy. The decision to outsource the city’s IT was consciously made in order to speed up the pace of technology innovation. Global City More Employees Than Citizens Since 1990, the population of Issy-les-Moulineaux has increased by 35% without any increase in government employment. Intelligent Community Forum (ICF)
