To work towards this ambition, the Metropolis set up the Metropolitan Digital Innovation Fund in September 2018. In addition to this financial support, the leaders of these projects also had access to a community of innovators, run by the Greater Paris Metropolis within the framework of the Digital Explorers and Digital Builders programmes.
In order to boost the impact of these schemes and encourage the emergence of more innovative projects, the Metropolis wishes to develop the support it offers, launching the “Innovating in the City” programme.
This support programme offers:
- a network of committed, high-level experts working alongside projects
- a defined and monitored pathway to maximise the success of projects over time
The programme is supported by a monitoring committee composed of innovation experts and funders: Cap Digital, Paris&Co, 27ème Région, Caisse des Dépôts, ANCT, French tech central, Bpifrance, Choose Paris Region, French Tech Grand Paris et Société du Grand Paris.
The role of this monitoring committee is to advise project leaders and direct them towards potential partners or funding opportunities or solutions. It is also responsible for providing technical advice to the FMIN Review Committee, which is made up of elected officials, and will be able to monitor funded projects.
