Lyon Living Lab Confluence wins prize

At the 2nd edition of the “Le Monde-Smart Cities” Forum held in Lyon on 7 April 2017, Lyon Confluence won the Urban Innovation prize for the Lyon Living Lab Confluence project.

This prize is awarded to a technological innovation used in an urban planning project. The innovation is then reviewed to assess its impact.

Lyon Living Lab Confluence was created to conduct neighbourhood-scale tests on practices that can then be deployed throughout the entire city.
At the heart of the project, blocks A1 and A2 North, with a total surface area of 31,500 sq. m., are designed to create a smart, sustainable urban space for the well-being of the neighbourhood’s inhabitants and the people who work there.

Winner of two prizes awarded this year (“Urban Innovation” for Lyon Confluence and the “Housing Prize” for Récipro-Cité), the Lyon metropolitan area confirms its ambition to be a European leader in Smart Cities and experimentation with new technologies.
