“We must reinvent our cities, that is, allow all our fellow citizens to create, in complete freedom, to make way for free architectural, cultural, economic, social and societal innovation[…]. It is what we will do by also launching DataCity, an initiative backed by NUMA, the most important incubator in Paris, which will allow putting technological innovation at the service of sustainable cities.“
