Stimulate local economic development

The challenge for local authorities is to encourage the local entrepreneurial ecosystem to embrace digital technology.

Digital tools can serve to improve commercial offers deployed on the municipal territory (develop tourism, manage urban markets, modernise logistics equipment), and thereby contribute to economic attractivity. But digital technology is also a sector of activity in itself, whose firms of all sizes deserve to be accompanied. Local authorities are responsible for encouraging innovation and, when they can, proposing a service offering to firms.
