Municipalities are key agents of change in building a more resilient society and achieving sustainable development goals. To that end, they strive to integrate the innovations generated by scientific research, insofar as they are accessible and applicable on a territorial scale. How can we ensure that cutting-edge research conducted in the scientific community has a significant local impact? Can innovations be used to generate economic, social and ecological benefits for the citizens of municipalities? In this panel, we will explore different formulas for integrating and co-constructing innovation in municipal territories. We will also explore the complexity inherent in municipal governance and how this can translate into the establishment of sustainable relationships between the municipal sector and the research and innovation communities.  

Les municipalités constituent des acteurs de changement de premier plan pour bâtir une société plus résiliente, et atteindre les objectifs de développement durable. Dans ce sens, elles aspirent à intégrer les innovations générées par la recherche scientifique, dans la mesure où celles-ci sont accessibles et applicables à l’échelle d’un territoire. Comment s’assurer que les recherches de pointe menées dans la communauté scientifique aient un impact local significatif ? Peut-on générer, à partir des innovations, des bénéfices économiques, sociaux et écologiques pour les citoyennes et citoyens des municipalités ? Dans ce panel, nous explorerons différentes formules d’intégration et de co-construction des innovations sur les territoires municipaux. Nous explorerons aussi la complexité inhérente à la gouvernance municipale et comment cela peut se traduire dans l’établissement de relations durables entre le réseau municipal, le milieu de la recherche et de l’innovation.
