Digital, information and communication technologies are revolutionising the management of public services and urban functioning and present unprecedented challenges for local authorities:

  • Real-time information offers the possibility of efficiently regulating demand and optimising the functioning of public services and infrastructure: smart towns, smart grids, etc.
  • The burgeoning number of private initiatives involving data capture calls for a necessary coordination between public authorities in order to safeguard the interests of citizens;
  • New technologies offer the possibility of designing new digital services for the population which enhance the appeal of local areas;
  • Superfast broadband telecommunications networkshave become an essential pre-requisite for the development of the regions.
