All our projects
Five general themes run through our work: mobility, building and planning, energy, behaviors, and digital technologies. These themes give rise to several year-long or multiyear research projects, conducted with different partners and leading to the production of reports, op-eds, expert viewpoints, etc., and to the organization of seminars, workshops, and conferences.
Urban Expedition to Toronto
How is Toronto, a provincial capital on the way to becoming a world city, positioning itself in the competitive game of global metropolises? How can it solve the problems it is currently facing?
Urban Expedition to Singapore
Singapore has developed an integrated approach of its territory and has associated careful governance to the use of technology in order to address its contemporary and future challenges.
Return of the economy to the city-center
How should we interpret the return of the economy to the city-center? What are the associated capitalistic models and urban dynamics?
The post-carbon city
Because they concentrate people and activities, cities are often cited as major factors of climate change. They now wish to become problem-solving, rather than problem-inducing territories.
Mobility funding in a post-carbon world
How can we rethink the mobility financing model? Can this transition be used to change travel behaviors?
La Fabrique de la Cité
La Fabrique de la Cité is a think tank dedicated to urban foresight, created by the VINCI group, its sponsor, in 2010. La Fabrique de la Cité acts as a forum where urban stakeholders, whether French or international, collaborate to bring forth new ways of building and rebuilding cities.
