The Center for Innovation in Urban Public Policies, CITIES, is concerned with the spatial distribution of income where the most vulnerable populations live on the outskirts of cities far from jobs, studies and a series of complementary activities that influence their formation. This distribution of space ends up greatly reducing opportunities for the poorest populations. CITIES intends to work to increase the opportunities of these population by 1. Improving the mobility of these people to access business centers with better quality and more quickly. 2. Helping to create social housing policies that allow the poorest population to be located in more central areas. 3. Taking culture, sport, leisure and complementary education activities to the peripheries and 4. Collaborating with the advancement of universal distance education. For this, CITIES will contribute to the design of urban public policies proposing innovative solutions for city halls, bringing companies to this joint design. In mobility, we will study the integration more intensely between modes, in particular with e-hailing. In social housing, we will study the possibility of using the real estate stock taking advantage of advances in real estate leasing platforms. Concerning the activities offering, there is an underutilized asset, the schools that already have a structure to used be after school hours to complement the education of their students but also to insert themselves in the community. Finally, the investments made by city halls in distance learning represent an opportunity to generate a universal platform for accessing resources that do not depend on their place of residence. The contribution of academia in designing this policy, defining pilot projects and evaluating the impacts of these pilots to improve policy design for a wider population is what we intend to deliver over these five years of the project. To this end, an experimental laboratory will be created as well as an open innovation laboratory within the center where the three spheres (government, private sector and academia) can come together to develop these evidence-based policies.
