The EPA Alzette Belval asked to students of the Master in Regional and Urban Strategy to realize a forward-looking study on the themes of the sport and the culture, on the horizon 2040 on its territory of action Alzette Belval.

The group project "To anticipate the place of the sport and the culture in 2040 in the High Country" was thus realized in two phases, fed on a study of strategic and university documents, on a number of conversations with actors of the territory as well as the realization of benchmarks and the study of structures on other territories confronted with similar problems.

At first, Alexia Beaujeux, Solène Laborde, Vincent Palaffre, Houssem Sahraoui and Félix Vève realized a territorial diagnosis of which they fed a forward-looking reflection on the territory. This one resulted in the definition of four scenarios forward-looking as four potential images of the territory in 2040.

Secondly, the team defined operational cultural and sports projects becoming integrated into the forward-looking scenarios, and declined according to the objectives, the levers of implementation and to the constraints. This reflection grew rich of a seminar organized by the students for the elected representatives, to stimulate the imagination and lead a common forward-looking reflection on the sport and the culture in 2040.

The report of the students will be published next September .

What is a group project?

Called also group capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees Regional and Urban StrategyGoverning the Large Metropolis and the Urban Planning Programme, puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.).

During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.

The APUR publishes the capstone realised by our students

  • Presentation © Urban SchoolPresentation © Urban School

Four students of the Master in Governing Large Metropolis presented their capstone today to their commissioning organisation the APUR and to the Paris City Hall. Their study "Short-term rentals: an analysis of metropolitan public responses" was published online and you can read it freely.

The report is the result of a collaboration between the Atelier parisien d’urbanisme (Apur) and the Sciences Po Urban School. Céline Guette, Bálint Liberman, Andrew Lombardi and Clara Maximovitch-Rodaminoff have worked on a Capstone project upon the request of both the Apur and the Paris City Hall.The purpose of this work was to compare how the cities of New York, Berlin, Barcelona, and Paris regulate the short-term rentals, taking into account the particular context of each city. In order to complete their task, the students went out in the field to interview actors integral to the short-term rentals issue in both Berlin and Barcelona.

This work was supervised by two researchers: Francesca Artioli, Assistant professor at the Paris-Est Créteil University (Ecole d’urbanisme de Paris) and Antoine Courmont, researcher at the Sciences Po “Cities and digital technology” chair. This work was done in the framework of a greater research project on the short-term rentals regulation in the European cities, currently led by Francesca Artioli, Thomas Aguilera (Sciences Po Rennes, Arènes) and Claire Colomb (University College London). Claire Colomb supervised the study on the field carried out by the students in Barcelona, by facilitating and guiding interviews with the local actors.

Presentation of the capstone for ENGIE

  • Students © Urban SchoolStudents © Urban School

Some students of the Master in Governing the large metropolis presented on June 7th their capstone to their commissioning organisation ENGIE.

The project aimed at answering one key question: who funds the city in Australia? Thus, in line with the company’s strategy of “Business to Territory,” Anastasia Abashina, Hafid Ait Sidi Hammou, Ella Pinard-Bertelletto and Hiromitsu Takata conducted a large study on Australian urbanization trends and policies framing the city-making on one hand, and on Public-Private partnership regulation and top companies in construction, property development and planning on the other.

As a result, they managed to bring more clarity on the relationship between public and private sector in the Australian context and underlined key governmental bodies and companies, national and international. All in all, this Capstone reached its objectives by both drawing a big picture of the situation in the contemporary city-making in Australia but also by conveying precise messages and point of references for ENGIE to pass on the next phase of their operations.

The students were followed several months by a tutor Pauline Emile-Geay.

Group project: "Metropolises and their territories: what common strategies in the service of the local development?"

  • Groupe de projet et leur tutrice Sarah Russeil © Groupe de projetGroupe de projet et leur tutrice Sarah Russeil © Groupe de projet

Within the framework of the group project of the Master's degree Regional and Urban Strategy, the Association of the managing directors of France (ADGCF), the Association of the Communities of France (AdCF) and the Association of the Towns of France (APVF) ordered a study to know better the cooperations between metropolises and territories which surround them. Five students presented their results on June 7th of this year.

By the analysis of three metropolitan configurations that are Lille, Nantes and Toulouse, the study was able to put forward the factors which condition the interterritorial dialogue in an institutional and political context of reconfiguration. If the law MAPTAM orders the metropolises of a mission of solidarity face to face of their hinterland, to what extent the peripheral territories seize opportunities of cooperation and which are them expectations?

Rich in 30 conversations with elected representatives and centre administration staff, this study gives to see a qualitative approach of the complex links which unite metropolises with the territories which line them.

Marion Bigay, Thibault Devillard, Simon Mozziconacci, Lola Perez Inigo and Juliette Sainclair will explain their study during a public meeting to the Caisse des dépôts in mid-September, in the presence of the members of the network ADGCF in particular.

A group of students presented its group project, on June 6th, to his commissioning organisation Avise. The subject to be explored was: "increase the cooperations between ecosystems of support in the emergence and the entrepreneurship of the classic economy and the ESS to strengthen their impacts on their territory."

At the request of AVISE, a study was realized by Hélia Chevrant-Breton, Lily Colombet, Florian Laboulais, Auriane Lamy and Margaux Roche, 5 students of the Master's degree Regional and urban strategy. It aims at estimating to what extent joints increased between ecosystems of support in the 9entrepreneurship of the Social and Supportive Economy (ESS) and those of the classic economy can allow these ecosystems to strengthen mutually to have a real leverage on territories. It leans on a comparison between three territories: Franche-Comté, metropolis of Lyon and districts policy of the city of Seine-Saint-Denis.

This study leans mainly on semi-directive interviews realized with actors involved in the support in the emergence and the entrepreneurship, as well as on a magazine of literature on the subject. The project puts forward specificities and complementarities of both ecosystems and importance to strengthen collaborations between them to meet the needs more effectively of their territory. The study develops a number of keys of success and examples illustrating the diversity of the forms that these cooperations can set; of the interknowledge favored by one-off events to the grouping of actors within partnerships9 allowing to share practices and evaluate. These collaborations allow the training of more complete, richer local offers and thus better same to answer the stakes in the support in the entrepreneurship. 

The entire study will soon be published by Avise.
