What do we learn from french experience?
• The importance of governance issues
– Inside the city administration, need for new organisation, new ways of working (project team reporting to the Mayor) – Lack of expertise and need of guidance and capacity building

• The need for public/private partnerships
– Co-construction of projects – In operating the projects

• The difficulty to go beyond pilot projects and ensure continuity (pb of business model)
