IMREDD is an Institute of Innovation and Partnerships (2IP) created in January 2020 which is interested in a societal challenge: the intelligent and resilient territory facing all environmental issues.

Its activities are based on four Strategic Activity Areas (SAAs): energy through the issues of intelligent buildings/neighbourhoods, mobility, risks, the environment and, in a transversal manner, human beings. The philosophical, ethical, safety, well-being, behavioural and usage aspects are at the heart of smart city projects.

IMREDD’s mission, in connection with industry, is to promote partnership research/transfer actions, to create educational and training programmes and to encourage expertise and innovation in companies in the field of economic development and job creation. It expresses its potential in its ability to encourage the emergence and development of projects aimed at understanding existing solutions, new needs and future prospects. In each strategic area of activity, its action consists of the identification of areas of innovation and the integration of expertise from the academic and business worlds.

Founded in 2015 by the former President of the University, Frédérique Vidal, today Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, IMREDD has achieved the objectives of its development plan in just a few years: the implementation of an engineering capacity, either simple or combined, depending on the nature of the projects, with the expertise of the research laboratories in response to a request from companies. Multiple and varied partnership research actions involving private and public partners. Training courses that meet international standards, allowing for targeted and customised continuing education of the highest quality. Finally, an open collaborative technological platform called the “Smart City Innovation Centre” which encourages experimentation, accompanies and supports innovative sectors by opening up the possibility of conducting trials, tests and prototypes.

Located in the Plaine du Var eco-valley, in the heart of the Nice Meridia eco-neighbourhood, IMREDD has integrated its Totem building, a precursor of future designs and technologies, at the start of the 2020 academic year.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
Urban management has become one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
By 2050, 70% of the world population will live in urban areas. Cities produce 80% of CO2 emissions and concentrate 3/4 of the energy needs of the planet. The goal of smart cities is to better manage the city and make it more pleasant for its inhabitants, its economic actors and its visitors.
Thus, IMREDD has the ambition of building the mediterranean city of tomorrow.
