Open Innovation Challenge – City of Trois-Rivières

1 avril 2022

Development and reinforcement of a unique citizen identification

The administration of the city of Trois-Rivières has several software programs that generate data on its citizens. Each system being independent, this data is found doubled in each of them.

Data collection is inefficient because these systems are not connected and do not speak to each other. In a context of municipal organization, the simple verification and documentation of a citizen’s identity will simplify the handling of internal teams. Almost all cities experience this problem. They seek to enrich their urban fabric with digital architectures through technologies, in order to make management more efficient.

The information technology team of the City of Trois-Rivières is looking for startups that could take up the proposed challenge.

By exploring the links and synergies between the different urban sectors, the team wishes to develop and strengthen a unique citizen identification through the different services of the city.

These data systems will profoundly change services to citizens as well as their lifestyles while making the management of the City of Trois-Rivières smarter.
