In the context of his election as Chair of the Urban community of Dunkirk, Mayor Vergriete launched a new strategy for the administration, in the form of 30 measures. 4 of these dealt with innovation, one relating directly to an innovation lab. La Transfo was launched in this perspective, as the most concrete outcome of the new vision.
Alexane Brochard (researcher and fractionner in the field of non-formal education), Xavier Figuerola (designer, cofonder of Talking Things) and Laura Pandelle (designer at La 27e Région) will be working with the local team all through La Transfo programme.
Nadège Guiraud is in charge of the general coordination of La Transfo in Dunkerque for La 27eRégion and liaises with other Cities and Regions involved in the programme.
The local ‘résident’
Mathilde Joseph is the project manager in charge of innovation and transition within the Department of international affairs and port management. She liaises between La 27e Région, the résidents and the ambassadors.
20 public agents, selected from a variety of Departments and categories, take part in the working sessions organized by the residents all through the program. They are also in charge of sharing and spreading the programme with their colleagues.
