Categopry 'Activities - Advice - Peer-to-peer panels'
An INTA Panel is an international voluntary advisory service in support to public authorities or private sector stakeholders, providing a coherent and specific urban development vision, based on highly intensive exploration of all issues and opportunities.

Due to the generosity of its members INTA is able to bring together, from its wide membership' expertise, international panels of up to 15 urban practitioners including public and private developers, local and regional development officials, members of the financial community, architects, planners, engineers and academics, with extensive experience in the issues to be reviewed.

International peer-to-peer Panel to develop a territorial strategic vision for the provincial municipality of Andahuaylas, Apurimac region, Peru. 2-9 March 2013
The strong urban growth that the city of Andahuaylas has known in recent years has updated the dynamic contradictions between urban and rural territory.
High migration flows created by the expansion of mining areas are mainly directed towards the outward districts of the city and rural villages which become new poles of development.
The rural-urban ecosystem faces a situation of uncontrolled growth. The watershed of the Chumbao river includes 3 districts (Andahuaylas, Talavera and San Jerónimo), and the fragility of this area requires the to set up a planning system that meets the current and future issues of this area.
Repositionning of the South-West sector of the Lyon Metropolitan Area
Givors, France. 20-26 January 2013
Cities and agglomerations are at a crossroads - they need to accommodate future growth in either furthering urban sprawl or becoming denser, as more concentrated territories offer more efficiency in infrastructure provision, transport usage, economic, commercial and social functions.
Because the smart-cities movement is being held back by a lack of clarity and consensus around what a smart city is and what the components of a smart city actually are, INTA approached the Urban Development Corporation of La Défense Seine Arche (Epadesa is a public agency in charge of the development of the business district of La Défense in the West of Paris) on how to apply the notions of “Smart City” to the existing business district (La Défense), to a future development area on a very constrained zone (les Groues) and a renewal project on the Seine waterfront where a former paperworks factory just closed (Bords de Seine).
Questions raised included what will be the Smart city of tomorrow? Is the Smart City only a digital city? How to conceive an integrated sustainable city where people, economy, mobility, environment, living and governance are smart?
