Looking towards the future, the Prince’s Government has entered into a partnership with Matrice, an entrepreneurship program at School 42 in Paris, with the goal of developing a  Smart City in Monaco.

During this first season, after a 15-day immersion in the Principality, thirty students from several countries thought about ways to enrich the tourism experience in Monaco through new technologies.

The same group met up again at 42 for a hackathon, to generate ideas and concepts, which were then presented yesterday to a multidisciplinary jury, chaired by Serge Telle, Minister of State.

The students whose proposals have been selected by the jury now have 9 months to refine their projects, then create their own startup to implement them and participate in the construction of a Smart City in Monaco.
