The director of Cité-ID, Professor Marie-Christine Therrien, discussed this challenge at a colloquium entitled “Design constellations: large-scale innovation ecosystems,” held during the 31st edition of the Entretiens Jacques Cartier. A guest speaker at the conference, Professor Therrien presented the approach used by Cité-ID Living Lab in Urban Resilience Governance to support actors in efforts to develop urban resilience in Québec. The colloquium assembled francophone Living Labs, public and private administrators and associations.
