1. Since 2015 has implemented an innovative health policy to address arising health challenges
2. Incorporated the Health sector into the territorial economic development strategy
3. Implemented an elaborated offer to coordinate Health services providers to address the following matters:
• To engage cohorts of beta-testers citizens
• Create innovation hubs
• Develop an ecosystem facilitating the deployment of applied innovative solutions
Today the City of Nice intents to take up the first « Challenge for a Nice Life » Initiative.
The Challenge will be launched on the evening of June, 27th, 2018, in parallel with the business Health convention ElwT (European Technological Health Institute) of which the City is a network partner. Locally elected representatives along with key account partners will present their pioneering, cutting-edge or even offbeat visions of the “HEALTH SMART CITY”.
