Overview About the Challenge Smarter Cities Newsfeed Summit 2012 Apply Countdown
Nice, France

In 2010, Mayor Christian Estrosi laid out a vision of sustainable, environmentally-friendly economic development for the city of Nice. The plan calls for the integration of different modes of transport, both public and private, through an "Eco-Valley multi-modal hub" system with the ultimate objective of limiting the environmental impact of individual travel throughout the city. Mayor Estrosi has challenged the IBM team members to draw on their knowledge of systems, behavior and technology to advise the city on the development of this transportation cluster.
