Smart City Métropole of Nice Côte d’Azur

For nearly 10 years, the Metropole of Nice has begun its digital transformation. Today, the Metropole is one of the most “connected” in France and was elected 4th Smart City in the World.

The Metropole has been able to rely on public partners such as local authorities or the University of Côte d’Azur, which won IDEX 2016, as well as private and industrial players and its rich ecosystem of start-ups.

The Metropolis is particularly ambitious in the face of territorial problems: for example, it has set itself the goal of improving energy efficiency by 20% by 2020.
