Technologie Civique en France

While the French Civic Tech - or “Technologie civique” - community has been growing for about ten years, it's gained significant traction only in the last 5 years. Originally mainly supported by local governments, the visibility of the scene has been highly accelerated by the multiplication of international events in Paris – such as the Open Government Partnership Summit – along with dramatic political moments – especially the recent Yellow vests crisis, followed by Le Grand Débat national.

French Civic Tech has at least two local cultural specificities. First, most of the organizations or projects are developed around Paris, a result of the highly centralized structure of France and the existence of local infrastructures. Then, a high proportion of projects are built in interaction with the government, notably because of a tradition of public funding and public impulsion, but also the difficulty to develop business models around politics in France due to (thanks to) strict regulation. These blurred lines probably contribute to confusion around the definition of civic tech, often overlapping and mixed up with gov tech, political activism, social innovation or public innovation.
