The Cities and Regions Club
The Cities and Regions Club brings together VINCI researchers and operational managers working on regional issues with the various local parties involved. Their aim is to use case studies to identify appropriate technical solutions. Recently, the Club has focused on working with representatives of the French Ministry for Ecology to analyse the winning projects of the EcoQuartiers France competition.
In 2012, VINCI established a partnership with the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) through its “Cities Club”. Among other things, this partnership led to the publication of a research paper on measuring the overall value of a project by looking at its positive and negative impacts on urban development. In 2013, the work mainly addressed the issues of innovative funding and urban planning.
The EPPP Chair
The Public Private Partnership Economics (EPPP) Chair is a research group jointly funded by Lyonnaise des Eaux-Suez, VINCI Concessions, Paris Habitat and maPPP. It is hosted by the IAE graduate business school of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
The group was established to ensure that company and public authority concerns relating to PPPs are addressed by academic research. Scientific investigations are conducted on key topics such as competitive tenders, the necessary degree of flexibility versus rigidity in contracts, adaptation of contracts over time, the reputation issue, etc. This research is primarily applied in the water, transport, waste and defence sectors.
In 2012, VINCI Concessions renewed for three years its financial support to the Chair.
