Welcome to the Lyon Smart City App Hack

La Métropole de Lyon decided to turn stakes of the tomorrow’ city into opportunities in leading an ambitious Smart City program. It is based on new technological, social, urban and environmental services to improve the quality of life and thereby generating new jobs and new businesses. Human being and innovation are the main focus to achieve the goal of a better living city.

La Métropole de Lyon teams up with TUBA « the test tube for urban experimentations » to organize this first Lyon Smart City App Hack together with two partners of TUBA : Veolia and Bouygues Immobilier. This contest offers app champions the opportunity to promote their innovative solution on the international level during the Smart City Expo World Congress 2015 in Barcelona.

Lyon Smart City App Hack is the opportunity to highlight and reward inventive applications developed by local entrepreneurs to make cities easier, more sustainable and more enjoyable for us all.
