EURÊKA CLUB, INCUBATOR OF CITIZEN PROJECTS
This participatory approach encourages and accompanies the development of community projects on the themes of the circular economy and well-being in the city in the quarter. Eurêka Club is run by TUBÀ on behalf of the Eurêka Confluence consortium. Eurêka Confluence is managed by Lyon Confluence and Bouygues Immobilier, and brings together public and private players: Métropole de Lyon, Colas, La Poste, Linkcity, Schneider Electric, SNCF Mobilités, Enedis, EDF, Keolis, Systra, Vicat, and others.
Eureka Club, a new participative approach in Lyon
In 2018, the jury composed of elected officials and local actors selected four projects.
- L’atelier des Nouveaux Designs (AdND) by Jessie Wellard, engineer and recycling educator
- Urban agriculture at La Confluence run by Mathilde Baillin, an agricultural engineer, Clément Caignol and Hugo Desprez, business school graduates and authors of a film on urban farming in Singapore
- Ek-eau studio, the first positive energy barge, by Camille Bajot, company manager (Ikada) at La Confluence
- Tissu Solidaire (jury’s favourite), created in 2015 by students of the IAE in Lyon, which works to bring together newcomers to France and local populations through sewing workshops.
WELCOME TO STATION MUE
Located in the heart of Le Champ in La Confluence, Station Mue is an urban laboratory for co-constructing and experimenting with the city of tomorrow. Events and workshops are organised around the themes of the natural, sustainable and resilient city. It is a unique place for the actors and users of the neighbourhood to meet and forge links and it encourages the public to participate in creating a desirable city. An opportunity to promote La Confluence and Lyon beyond its borders.

A COMMERCIAL SPACE FOR RENT
In 2019, Lyon Confluence launched an initial call for applications to select the lessee(s) for a 210m² divisible commercial space, strategically located in the heart of the Market Quarter, on the ground floor of the Cap Sud project delivered in spring 2020.
The criteria for proposals focused on:
- an innovative and original concept that stands out from commonplace stores: third places, hybrid spaces, craft trades, concept stores (digital, training, etc.), etc.
- complementarity with the existing range of shops and services
- a friendly place contributing to the liveliness of the neighbourhood (opening hours, cultural and social dimension, etc.)
- a place for gathering and exchanges (sharing of services, experiences, knowledge, know-how, conferences, workshops, etc.)
- a mid-range positioning, affordable prices for a majority of local residents and visitors
- meeting the needs of all users, particularly families; commitment to a responsible, ecological and solidarity-based approach (social integration, circular economy, etc.)
- in line with the values of the project's sustainable action plan (in particular, zero waste, sustainable mobility, local and sustainable food).
The objective of the approach? To meet the needs of the territory and its users in terms of shops, trades, services and activities on the ground floor for a lively local city.
