Le Monde Innovation Awards-Smart Cities

Apply HERE

Deadline: May 13, 2018


For the third year in a row, Le Monde is kicking off its urban innovation competition. The Le Monde Smart Cities Awards are intended to promote the best urban transformation projects deserving to receive greater attention, so that others can follow their example, adapting it if necessary to their own context.

As a company, municipality, association, student, individual, perhaps you have considered or started implementing an original and effective solution for your urban environment. Le Monde invites you introduce your project and apply for one of the Le Monde Smart Cities awards.

Smart and sustainable cities are aimed at improving services and quality of living, resilience, environmental protection, cost-cutting, and deeper democracies; they foster effective integration of information technologies all the while fundamentally drawing inspiration from the expectations and participation of citizens.

Whether it applies to an islet, neighbourhood or entire city, your project must address the issues at stake in smart and sustainable cities.

Why take part ?:

In addition to the above awards, for which applications are open, the judging panel will award a Grand Prize. The Grand Prize is not limited to any specific category: the judging panel will award it to the project thatstands out most for its innovative approach.

Each award-winner will receive a €1,000 check, while the Grand Prize will carry an award of €2,000.
All winning projects will be written up in an article to be published on Le Monde‘s website.

Open to all individuals, private companies, public municipal associations or institutions, this competition offers the opportunity to participate at either the European or World level.
