Call for Experiments City of Tomorrow
Success of the operation! Continued in 2022! "Paris2Connect, join us" aims to allow you to experiment innovative solutions based on the processing of digital and video data collected or on the private 4G / 5G network deployed on a limited perimeter of the Parisian public space.
Rules of the Call for Experimentation "Paris2Connect, Join us!
RULES OF THE CALL FOR EXPERIMENTATION
The purpose of the Rules is to define the conditions and rules of participation in the P2C EA.
Participation in the P2C EA implies full and unreserved acceptance of these Rules. If you do not agree with the terms of the Rules, you should not register or participate in this AE.
- Duration of the EI
The call for experimentations in December 2021 following the success of the operation and will continue throughout 2022. The AE P2C is accessible 24 hours a day on the website dedicated to the AE P2C published by Agorize and accessible at the URL: [https://paris2connect.agorize.com/] ("the AE Site"), subject to possible computer maintenance operations or malfunctions. The above dates and times are considered as Paris time.
- Acceptance of the Regulations
Any organization registered on the P2C EA Site and in the P2C EA ("Participant") must acknowledge and expressly accept the Rules. By accessing and accepting the Rules, You :
- Have entered into a binding contract with the Organizers. Provided that registration and participation in the P2C EA does not, in any way, create a relationship of subordination between the Organizers and the Participant; and
- Agree fully and unreservedly to abide by these Rules and Regulations in all their provisions. Acceptance is by means of an online checkbox to be checked when registering for the P2C EA.
Failure to comply with the aforementioned rules will result in immediate cancellation of participation.
- Registration and participation in the P2C EA
To participate in the P2C AE, we must have received your complete registration before October 29, 2021 at 5:00 pm for the first wave of projects and November 26, 2021 at 5:00 pm for the second wave.
In order to participate in the AE P2C, the Participant must have created a user account on the AE P2C website, and filled in the required information in a fair and complete manner, such as name, surname, e-mail address, etc.
Participants who have not provided proof of their complete contact information and identity or who have provided it inaccurately or falsely will be disqualified. The information provided by the Participant as part of his registration to the P2C AE is his responsibility and any error, anomaly, inconsistency, intentional or not, relating to the information provided by the Participant will lead to his disqualification.
The organisers reserve the right to carry out any necessary checks on the identity and e-mail address of the Participants.
The deletion of a Participant's user account on the AE P2C Site will be considered as an abandonment of the latter's participation in the AE P2C. In this case, the Participant, even if he/she is able to prove that this deletion is not his/her fault, will not be able to rejoin the AE P2C, nor will he/she be able to obtain any compensation from the organizers.
- Conditions for participation in the P2C EA
The AE P2C is open to all experimentation initiators, whether they are companies (including start-ups, industrial and commercial establishments), associations, laboratories, universities, schools, etc.
Applicants must commit to the conditions for implementing their experiments (resources, deadlines, etc.).
No financial support or compensation is foreseen. The Paris2Connect consortium and the City of Paris are mobilizing to provide you with quality data and connectivity that will allow you to implement your proposals in real conditions and make the most of them.
When the applicants to the AE specify their proposal (by completing their application file via the Template of the application form) they will have to define the datasets required to implement their innovative solutions. They may specify if their innovative solutions require the use of additional data (other than those provided by the "Paris2connect" infrastructure, for example those open to the RATP or the City of Paris). The installation of data collection tools in public spaces (e.g. sensors) may be considered. It will be conditioned by the constitution of a complete file (description, plans, estimates,...) which will be submitted for validation to the Paris2Connect consortium and the City of Paris. If the file is validated, the intervention will be the subject of an agreement with the City of Paris. All costs related to this type of approach will have to be covered by the solution provider.
The Paris2Connect consortium and the City of Paris will be extremely vigilant to ensure compliance with regulations (CNIL, RGPD), and to respect the ethical clauses that are essential in the development of the uses. If the proposed innovative solution requires the use of personal data, this is expected to be done within the framework of a subcontracting contract in the sense of the RGPD with the City of Paris, as the Data Controller.
- Principle of the P2C EA and modalities of participation
The AE P2C consists in the realization by the Participants of contributions (or project) formalized by deliverables, meeting the requirements set by the organizers in the AE P2C brief. This brief includes information such as the different deadlines, the requirements of the organizers, etc. ("the Brief"). The Brief is available on the P2C RA Website.
During the AE P2C, Participants may submit, via the AE P2C Site, any document or file (such as texts, presentations, videos, etc.) related to their project as an answer, solution and result to the organizers' AE P2C (the "Deliverable").
To be valid, the Deliverables must (i) address the specific problem posed in the Brief, (ii) be in a standard digital format, such as doc, docx, pdf, ppt, pttx, key, odt, mp3, mpeg, mov, mp4, (iii) be in French, and generally comply with the requirements of the Rules.
If a Deliverable cannot be uploaded, is not in the correct format, or is incompatible, illegible or unintelligible, it will be disqualified.
By submitting a Deliverable, Participants represent and warrant that:
The Deliverable consists solely of contributions from an individual participant or a team.
Otherwise, if third party content has been used in the preparation of the Deliverable, all necessary rights, permissions and agreements to submit the Deliverable and grant the rights mentioned herein have been obtained. The existence of a third party contribution in violation of these rights will result in the disqualification of the Deliverable and the Participants concerned.
No other natural person and/or legal entity in any form whatsoever may claim any rights from the use of the deliverable.
The content of the Deliverable does not and will not violate any third party rights, including (but not limited to) intellectual property rights, privacy rights, competition law, confidentiality, or any other contractual or non-contractual rights. Any deliverable suspected of violating third party rights and/or law(s) will be ineligible for P2C EA.
Participants are responsible for all costs and expenses related to the preparation and submission of Deliverables. Participants are solely responsible for damaged, lost, delayed, incomplete, invalid, incorrect or misdirected Deliverables.
- Conduct of the P2C EA
This AE P2C will be launched on September 23, 2021.
Information meetings will be held in the field and remotely from the end of September.
Selections process will be held on february 28th and may 2dn 2022. Ftures dates will be announced later.
From then on, the contractual closing can take place with the city of Paris and the Paris2Connect consortium in order to organise the implementation according to the conditions agreed between the parties.
An initial assessment of the operation will be made at the end of Q2 2022.
At the end of 2022, a global evaluation will be carried out and presented to the departments and elected officials of the City of Paris.
Deliverables. Failure by a Participant to submit a Deliverable on the P2C RA Website by the deadline shall be deemed to be a withdrawal from participation in the P2C RA. The Participant will not be able to re-enter the AE P2C, nor will he/she be able to obtain any compensation from the organizers.
Notification to Participants. Once the selection process is complete, Participants will be notified by email, at the sole discretion of the organisers, of the results of each selection stage. The organisers shall be free to change the dates on which the results are communicated in the event that the number of projects to be examined makes such a change necessary.
- Selection stage
The jury will examine the applications and will reject those that are ineligible or insufficiently detailed.
A committee of experts will be responsible for selecting the proposed projects on the basis of :
An application file submitted,
A hearing of the eligible innovative solution providers during which they will be invited to present their project orally.
- Selection criteria
Projects will be judged according to the selection criteria outlined below. The Participant acknowledges that he/she is aware of and accepts that the proposed P2C EA will require creativity, sagacity, skill and ingenuity to solve complex problems. The P2C EA is not dependent in any way, even partially, on chance and luck and therefore cannot be analyzed or likened to a lottery.
The proposed projects must provide added value to the territory, as highlighted in the response.
The evaluation and selection criteria for the projects will be :
- Innovative nature of the proposed solution (more or less already marketed or not)
- Technical feasibility of the project
- Previous references of the solution provider and level of maturity of the proposed solution
- Relevance and impact of the project: Potential benefits of the project for decision-makers, for other administrations, for users, for public agents, and other beneficiaries.
- Potential replicability
- Project duration, iteration frequency
- Project organization: dedicated resources (qualitative and quantitative) in man-days over an indicative period (project team), governance and capacity of the organization to succeed in the project within the chosen scope and timeframe.
It is reminded that no financing is planned. However, project leaders may have or apply for funding from current windows (e.g. BPI).
The Participant acknowledges and agrees that the organizers may, in France, for the duration of the AE P2C and for a period of one (1) year following the Final, use the AE P2C for advertising purposes, including communication and marketing of the organizers, whatever the format, means and medium (website, banner ads, social networks, newsletter, press release, etc.), known or unknown to date, free of charge or against payment.
To do so, you consent to the use by the organizers of your image and the content of your deliverables related to the P2C AE. For example, each Participant authorizes the organizers to use the photographs taken during the Final in order to broadcast them on any communication medium.
Any communication project by the Participant, in particular by way of publication, presentation in any medium or form whatsoever, relating to the Paris2Connect project must receive the prior written consent of the organizers.
This use does not entitle you to any remuneration, nor does it require any additional consent on your part. The organisers expressly undertake to cease all use of the above-mentioned elements in connection with the Participant at the end of the above-mentioned period.
The organizers of the AE P2C are under no obligation to keep confidential the information contained in the Deliverables submitted by the Participants. In general, by submitting a Deliverable, Participants acknowledge and agree that the information contained therein may be disclosed to the public by the organizers.
If you are a winner, the organizers may ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement in order to enter into negotiations regarding the development of your project as described in your Deliverable. This confidentiality agreement will cover your Deliverable and the intellectual property rights associated with it.
