The potential for replication of the solutions deployed at La Confluence is very high, and is one of ASCEND's key objectives, particularly through the deployment of Solution Packages.
Firstly, replication will be carried out on a metropolitan scale. The Lyon Metropolitan Area encompasses 59 municipalities of all sizes: Lyon has around 500,000 inhabitants, Villeurbanne 150,000, while the smallest municipality in the Metropolitan Area, Curis-au-Mont-d'Or, has just 1,000 inhabitants.
As part of ASCEND, a Local Partnership Council (PIC) has been set up by SPL Lyon Confluence. This council, which aims to reflect on the solutions deployed at Confluence and facilitate their replication elsewhere, brings together private players, associations, investors, research institutes, etc., and of course, local policymakers: representatives of the City of Lyon, the City of Villeurbanne, the Lyon Metropolis Authority among others.
SPL Lyon Confluence is also an active member of the national urban developer network (CVA), cooperating with numerous other urban developers in charge of similar projects. Thus, this active network constitutes an opportunity for replication all over France.
