Validated Lead Expert

Generic Skills

B.1. Understanding of integrated and sustainable urban development: 
I graduated in design at the National High School for Industrial Creation ENSCI, Les Ateliers in Paris in 1989. I founded and have since then led Strategic Design Scenarios (SDS), a sustainable innovation lab consultancy based in Brussels which now has 25 years of experience in innovation for public services, policy design, and social innovation for sustainable ways of living. During these years at SDS I have concentrated on sustainable development projects at various governance levels. For instance in 2014 I led the URBACT Social Innovation in Cities capitalisation workstream. From 2008 until 2013 I was the Scientific Director of La 27e Région, a French public innovation lab collaborating with cities and regions through field immersion processes to co-develop local sustainable innovation projects with citizens, civil servants and elected representatives. Between 2013 and 2015 I led a large participative redesign process of the French Agenda 21 national policy for the Ministry of Environment. At European level I led the design of the Multilevel Governance Charter for the Committee of Regions. I have collaborated with many European and international research projects focusing sustainable lifestyles (see details in B.2). In particular since 2006 I have organised many workshops on social innovation for sustainable living in more than 20 cities worldwide including Shanghai, Guangzhou, Tokyo, New York, Montreal, Rio, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Cape Town, Nairobi, Tunis and Malmö.
B1. Assessment: 
1 - Demonstrated more than10 years of various experience with integrated and sustainable urban development (education, projects, published books and articles)
B.2. Understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level: 
I have been Lead Expert in the URBACT II Sustainable Food in Urban Communities thematic network. I have taken part as a partner in 12 European Commission funded research projects investigating the emergence of sustainable solutions (SPREAD, 2011; CORPUS, 2010; SCORE, 2003; EMUDE, 2002; SUSHOUSE, 2000), the design of product-service systems (HiCS, 2000; MEPSS, 2001), the innovation process in small and medium-sized enterprises (INFU, 2009; UCIM, 2006; E-VAN, 2001), the impact of augmented workspaces (AMBIENT AGORAS, 2001) and the creation of deliberative processes on nanotechnologies (NANOPLAT, 2008). I am also a co-organiser of the Creative Communities for Sustainable Lifestyles project in Brazil, India and China (CCSL, 2008) and in Africa (CCSLA, 2009) within the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production supported by UNEP, UN DESA and the Swedish Ministry of Environment.In 2010 I co-founded the DESIS (Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability) network. As Professor at La Cambre design school since 2004, at Politecnico of Milan (2006 - 2013) and at ENSCI Les Ateliers, Paris (2009 - 2012), I have organised local sustainable development projects between students and city administrations on topics such as urban agriculture with Milan, user-based urban planning with Paris-Saclay and local urban regeneration in Liège. I am also a visiting professor at SciencePo Lille, INET and CNFPT (French schools of public administration).
B2. Assessment: 
1 - Provided several significant transnational activities that demonstrate understanding of exchange and learning processes at transnational level
B.3. Proficiency in English: 
I have coordinated collaborative projects and organised and animated workshops in English at European and international level for 25 years. I have taught in English as a visiting professor in several schools including Parsons New School, New York, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, the University of Nairobi and RMIT Melbourne. I have been invited to give lectures and speeches in English at major conferences and forums including keynotes at Eco2006, Tokyo; Swedish Design Faculty 2010, Stockholm; Green Design, Zhuzhou (China) 2010; NORDES 2011, Helsinki; Parsons, New York 2012; Disruptive Imaginings, Toronto 2014; and Vancouver 2015. I am the author or co-author of a number of publications written in English including URBACT Social Innovation in Cities and URBACT Creating Space for Sustainable Food Systems in Urban Communities, eight books/iBooks on social innovation, sustainable lifestyles and collaborative consumption, and 39 scientific papers and conference papers (see detailed list in CV).
B3. Assessment: 
1- proven proficiency in English (C1/C2)

Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities:

C.3.1. Ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers: 
As a designer I make use of drawing and visualisation skills to facilitate communication and knowledge brokering between stakeholders. These are highly efficient techniques especially with non-English speakers or to support the involvement of participants with difficulties in understanding a foreign language. For instance, at the end of each transnational meeting of the Sustainable Food in Urban Communities network I produced overnight a synthesis of the main lessons learned with 10-15 drawings animated using Keynotes software and presented it to the participating partners before they left. I also used the recording facilities of Keynotes to produce in real time a short 10 min. video that was uploaded onto the network website to make the conclusions available to Local Support Group members who were not in the meeting.
C3.1 Assessment: 
1 - Provided example that demonstrates ability to communicate complex concepts to non-English speakers
C.3.2. Ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants: 
Using the same designer skills and tools described in C.3.1, I produce storyboards, video-sketches, graphic schemes and highly communicative non-verbal visualisations to support stakeholders' interaction and communication. For instance: - an 8 metre long time line showing the progress of the Transformation Ecologique et Sociale de la Région (Ecological and Social Transformation of the Region) of the Nord-Pas de Calais region. (http://www.strategicdesignscenarios.net/the-ecological-and-social-transformation-of-the-region) - a 5 min. Prezi presenting a tentative sustainable food vision for 2030 for the launch event of the Brussels-Capital Region’s Sustainable Food Strategy. - a 6 min. film with animated drawings and voiceover entirely self-developed by a group of 22 civil servants from the Conseil Général de la Gironde in Bordeaux. (in French http://www.sustainable-everyday-project.net/boite-a-outils-visions-21/2014/03/03/gironde)
C3.2 Assessment: 
1 - Provided more than two examples that demonstrate the ability to draw out, support the verbalization and documentation of knowledge and practice from participants to enable comparison, exchange, peer review, etc
C.3.3. Ability to capture learning for participants to take away: 
I started my work as Lead Expert of the Sustainable Food in Urban Communities network by capturing many light cases of good practice from all the 10 cities I visited during the development phase. These 89 examples all illustrated with a composition of 2-3 good and significant pictures I took myself, a catchy title and a short caption text were integrated in the baseline report. I also used them to facilitate knowledge sharing between partner cities. During the kick-off meeting in Bristol I involved all 30 participating partners to build collectively an exhibition based on these 89 examples, all printed on A4 paper. Throughout the implementation phase I repeatedly came back to these examples using them as repository of the collective experience of the network. I encouraged partner cities to enrich them progressively with new examples. At the end of the network the collection comprised 130 examples. I designed with them a deck of 130 cards, like playing cards, that I called 'Discussion Cards': a new output to disseminate the knowledge of the network to other cities and stimulate them to play with the cards to start conversations among local stakeholders on the topic of sustainable food.
C3.3 Assessment: 
1 - Provided more than two examples that demonstrate the ability to capture learning for participants to take away, also visible from the list of publications in the CV.
C.3.4. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages: 
The 2 main outputs respectively of the URBACT network of which I was Lead Expert and of the URBACT capitalisation workstream I led are good examples of concise and practical policy reports: - ‘Creating Space for Sustainable Food in Urban Communities' has been conceived as an policy and practice handbook, with short texts, systematic policy advice and a recommendations box for cities after each chapter, with the most relevant cases of good practice, attractive graphics and pictures and an embedded toolbox supporting all the main steps of the process followed by the network. It has a medium-sized format with less than 90 pages, easy to read text, rich illustrations and attractive graphic design. - 'Social Innovation in Cities' is a light report designed as a 'Special Issue' (in the same way magazine often produce) comprising concise items of various sorts: thematic articles, focused case studies, interviews, lessons learned, etc. This structure was designed to enable the reader to enter through multiple points and navigate freely among self-standing elements of content, thus matching the evolution of online knowledge content browsing. Other examples that I have produced are: - an eBook entitled 'Sustainable Street 2030' targeted at policy-makers as one of the final deliverables of the FP6 CORPUS project; - the Agenda Iris 21 policy assessment report including 25 humorous cartoons I made to capture the policy conclusions in a light and somewhat teasing way;
C3.4 Assessment: 
1 - Provided more than two examples that demonstrate the ability to produce concise reports that incorporate good practices and policy messages. In addition, more than 10 books and over 20 articles published that include policy messages (visible in the CV).
Summary Expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities: 
I have extensive experience of organising and moderating international groups of stakeholders (i.e. as Lead Expert of an URBACT II network, leader of an URBACT capitalisation workstream and through participation as a partner to more than 12 EU-funded research projects). I use my design skills to facilitate collaborative workshops by designing ad hoc interaction tools (e.g. poster to fill in collectively, set of question cards) and to support non-verbal communication, to bridge language and cultural gaps (e.g. using visualisations, story-boarding and multimedia). I also make use of the design approach to create attractive and concise communication artefacts (e.g. a handbook to support cities in sustainable food policy-making, a multiple entry policy report presented as a 'Special Issue' magazine) and practical efficient toolkits (e.g. a set of tools complementary to the URBACT ULSG toolkit, a visioning toolbox to support local authorities in building their local sustainable action plans). I am also good at inventing playful interaction situations (i.e. a Marketplace to sell and buy good practices, a 'Living Exhibition' based on the participants themselves). I make rapid use of multi-media and internet technologies (e.g. Speed Presentation formats captured in short videos to facilitate attractive knowledge sharing; developing a blog for each project, producing an eBook, animated tutorials and ‘making-of’ video to support learning activities).
Assessment: 
The expert is validated for C, with maximum score, demonstrating vast relevant expertise for the design and delivery of transnational exchange and learning activities. Participated in 17 transnational projects wiht exchange and learning activities and out of that 5 are directly about sustainable urban development.

D.2. Ability to produce thematic inputs to feed in the learning process of in projects in which you have been involved: 
Within the EMUDE and CCSL projects I focussed part of the research effort on collecting light cases of social innovation using the participation of students in each of the selected cities. In both projects this collection of cases was circulated among the city administrations, non-profit organisations and design schools taking part in the projects to facilitate cultural interpretations and knowledge brokering through examples between the different socio-cultural contexts. Two websites were designed for the collection and exchange of these cases but are no longer available. A book with the final selection of cases from the EMUDE project was published: Meroni A., 2007. Creative communities, People inventing sustainable ways of living. with essays by Bala, P., Ciuccarelli, P., Collina, L., De Leeuw, B., Jégou, F., Luiten, H., Manzini, E., Marras, I., Meroni, A., Strandbakken, P., Stø, E., Vadovics, E.

D.3. Ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange & learning activities, put forward good practice: 
The results of the URBACT II capitalisation process on the 'Social Innovation in Cities' workstream were published in a concise report analysing in particular the potential of social innovation for cities and their ability to change their administrations to better collaborate with citizens. In particular the report, which consists of short thematic articles, focuses on key questions such as: What is the potential of social innovation for cities? What is changing in city administrations to facilitate collaboration with citizens? How are citizens helping to build collaborative public services? How can cities create the right environment for social innovation to develop? What combination of tools and agencies, offline and online, can catalyse citizens’ energies and contributions? How can cities create space for experimentation and facilitate the maturation, deployment and scaling up of social innovation? A final synthesis section pulls together the lessons learned. It formulates policy recommendations and warnings, and wraps them up into 10 actions for cities to start with social innovation.

D.4. Understanding of how to maximize the use of project results for benefits in capitalization, policy design, awarenes: 
The EMUDE project was a Specific Support Action and its ultimate scope was to contribute to the shaping of European research policy. The CCSL project was an important milestone for the Swedish/UNEP Taskforce on Sustainable Lifestyles and contributed to the Taskforce’s final report on Sustainable Lifestyles (http://www.unep.fr/scp/Marrakech/taskforces/pdf/SLT%20Report.pdf) These two projects were among the first to draw attention to social innovation as a strong assets at local level for the redynamisation of urban territories, the refurbishment of the social fabric and integrated urban sustainable development. I have also authored and co-authored a series of scientific and conference papers including: - Jégou F., 2008. ‘Social innovation and design of promising solutions towards sustainability: emerging demand for sustainable solutions (EMUDE)’, in System Innovation for Sustainability, Perspectives on radical changes to sustainable consumption and production, edited by Tucker A., Charter M,.

Summary Thematic expertise: 
My expertise in local governance is focusing the potential of social innovation to support local development in particular in a context of shrinking public budgets and increasing social and economic problem at city scale. I lead the URBACT II capitalisation process on the 'Social Innovation in Cities' workstream. My expertise in social innovation dynamics is based on field work, investigating grassroots dynamics and creative communities in 8 European cities and in a sample of 7 cities in Brazil, India, China and Africa. It is also based on the investigation of how city governance may transform to better collaborate with citizens and take advantage of all assets that social innovation represents in terms of community-led development, stimulation of social entrepreneurship, sustainable regeneration of neighbourhood social fabric, and integrated development towards new and more sustainable ways of living. During various URBACT, FP5 EU-funded research projects and international projects with the United Nations Environment Programme, I produced a large series of thematic outputs based on a series of light cases of social innovation collected worldwide including the production of the policy and practice report on 'Social Innovation in Cities'.
Assessment: 
The expert is validated for this theme, scoring 3 out of 4. Not validated only for D3 but this is in fact inconclusive as the other examples visible in part C and CV do not specify if they are addressed to city policy makers or not.
Theme / Policy: 
Urban Strategic Planning
D.1. Deep knowledge on the selected theme and related policy challenges, including up to date practice, research, etc.: 
My experience in urban strategic planning has focused on developing and experimenting with bottom-up approaches to citizen-led sustainable urban development and evidence-based policy-making. Starting from my educational background as a designer, I focused on larger territorial scales, neighbourhood dynamics, household lifestyles. From 2008 until 2013 I was Scientific Director of La 27e Région, an emerging public innovation lab based in France and collaborating with regions and cities. I co-created and pilot with them an original format of action research on the territory called ‘residence’. The principle of this method derives from user-centred design approaches and proposes to base public innovation and territorial development on a user approach. Small creative teams are immersed 'in residence' for three weeks over a period of four months in a neighbourhood, a public administration, a school, a hospital or a railway station to co-develop solutions with the different populations working or living there. I had the opportunity to lead or take part in such experiences in Saint-Etienne focusing on the city as a living laboratory for social change (2006); in the Wazemme neighbourhood of Lille focussing on the temporary use of public space (2011); in the Paris-Saclay campus focussing on the integration of the massive arrival of researchers and students (2012); and in the Saint-Gilles neighbourhood of Liège focussing on the revitalisation of a declining urban area (2014).

1 - Demonstrated more than two years of experience in having deep knowledge on the selected theme and related policy challenges, including up to date practice, research, etc.
D.2. Ability to produce thematic inputs to feed in the learning process of in projects in which you have been involved: 
As Scientific Director of La 27e Région, I followed the different residences organised and coordinated the production of booklets produced by the residents in order to tell the story of their experiences, the results (successes and failures) they obtained and to infer the lessons learned to orient the policies of the local authorities (cities and regions) involved. For instance: - The first residence on opening high schools (in French http://www.la27eregion.fr/publications/livret-le-campus-ouvert/) - One of the last residences on access to public administration (in French http://www.la27eregion.fr/publications/diaporama-ladministration-publique-au-coin-de-ma-rue/) I also produced a series of scientific and conference papers to analyse this user-based approach to territorial sustainable development. For instance: - Jégou, F and Vincent, S, 2010. ‘Residencies in public institutions supporting local transition to sustainable ways of living’ in Human Cities, Celebrating public space, Stichting Kunstboek Publishers, Brussels (http://www.strategicdesignscenarios.net/residencies-in-public-institutions-supporting-local-transition-to-sustainable-ways-of-living) - Jégou, F., Vincent, S. and Thévenet, R. 2010. ‘Sustainable transformation through an acupuncture of residences in Nord-Pas de Calais periurban areas’ in Design and Creation, Wixi.

D.4. Understanding of how to maximize the use of project results for benefits in capitalization, policy design, awarenes: 
The programme of residences (15 residences organised so far in 2015) has a two-fold aim: learning from field work, co-producing solutions with citizens, prototyping and testing them on the one hand and, on the other hand, interacting with appropriate levels of governance to report the lessons learned and (re)design public policies in consequence at local, regional or national levels. One example: Between 2009 and 2010, four residences have been conducted with different types of high schools in France. In 2011 I coordinated a capitalisation project titled 'Mon Lycée Demain' (My High School Tomorrow) ordered by the two French regions of Champagne-Ardennes and Nord-Pas de Calais and including the four residences, field work and an Experimentation Lab at ENSCI Les Ateliers design schools. 'Mon Lycée Demain' enabled the identification of the lack of innovation in the way regions are designing new high schools and generated a new tool: 'L'Échantionneur', a sample box of more than 100 creative ideas, projects and benchmarks to enrich calls for projects issued by French regions on this topic.

This experience, which continues today, was accompanied by other field work in: Saint-Etienne focusing on the city as a living laboratory for social change (2006); in the Wazemme neighbourhood of Lille focussing on the temporary use of public space (2011); in the Paris-Saclay campus focussing on the integration of the massive arrival of researchers and students (2012); and in the Saint-Gilles neighbourhood of Liège focussing on the revitalisation of a declining urban area (2014). I have also produced and coordinated numerous publications to disseminate and teach this citizen-led urban sustainable development and evidence-based policy-making approach.
Assessment: 
The expert is validated for this theme, scoring 3 out of 4. Hi was not validared for D4 as the example he provided that demonstrates an understanding of how to maximize the use of project results for strategic benefits in capitalization, policy design, awareness raising, etc was not in the relevant field (limited to education, not integrated urban development). However, the expamlpes provided in E2 further demonstrate his experience in this field and therefore the validation is fully justified.
Theme / Policy: 
Environmental Issues
D.1. Deep knowledge on the selected theme and related policy challenges, including up to date practice, research, etc.: 
In the last 20 years of my professional activities I have focussed on the question of sustainable ways of living from three major angles: 1) The construction of territorial projects of sustainable development. In particular I supported the Agenda 21 policies in France and Belgium at various levels: - Participative field work with the communes of Molenbeek (organisation of walking diagnosis with the population) and Saint-Gilles (engagement of the population in the greening of their neighbourhood) in Brussels; - Deployment of a visioning process to support local authorities in developing their sustainable development territorial project (VISIONS+21 implemented in 3 regions and 5 cities in France); assessment of Agenda 21 policy (Agenda Iris 21 of the Brussels-Capital Region); - Scenarios of the evolution of territorial sustainable development projects ('Rio+20 and after, the Agenda 21 of tomorrow' in France) and the redesign of the French Agenda 21 national policy (AGENDA+21 new recognition scheme). 2) Forward-looking activities and scenario development on sustainable ways of living through European Research Projects (i.e. FP6 SPREAD; FP6 CORPUS; FP5 SusHouse). 3) Research and experimentation on user behaviour change in particular in the field of energy (ISEU Integration of Standardisation, Ecodesign and Users in Energy Using Products for BELSPO) and water use (Water, Cities and Nature Service design programme of the French water provider Lyonnaise des Eaux).

1 - Demonstrated more than two years of experience in having deep knowledge on the selected theme and related policy challenges, including up to date practice, research, etc
D.2. Ability to produce thematic inputs to feed in the learning process of in projects in which you have been involved: 
Between 2012 and 2014 I supported the TESR (Transformation Ecologique et Sociale de la Région – Regional Ecological and Social Transformation) of the Nord-Pas de Calais region in France. This complex and systemic transition process at regional scale was difficult to communicate to citizens and local stakeholders. In order to facilitate their appropriation and buy-in of this regional policy I co-developed an original 5 min. animated movie that is now one of the major dissemination tools of the Nord-Pas de Calais region on this topic. (presentation in English, movie in French: http://www.strategicdesignscenarios.net/the-ecological-and-social-transformation-of-the-region/) For the Molenbeek Agenda 21 participative diagnosis I produced three booklets to transmit to citizens and local stakeholders the process and lessons learned from the three 'walking diagnoses': (in French http://www.strategicdesignscenarios.net/agenda-21molenbeek-citizen-walks)

D.4. Understanding of how to maximize the use of project results for benefits in capitalization, policy design, awarenes: 
The experience of constructing territorial projects of sustainable development and Agenda 21 policies in France and Belgium is an interesting experience at multiple levels of governance and across two national territories. The very fact of doing participative field work with the communes in Brussels, visioning activities with local authorities developing their sustainable development territorial projects in France on the one hand and on the other hand developing scenarios on the evolution of territorial sustainable development projects gave me the necessary background and capacities to really bring about significant change at higher governance levels and to redesign the French Agenda 21 national recognition scheme. This one-year process (late 2014 to late 2015) has resulted in two major events that show the policy change at national level: - A national forum we organised on 17 October 2014 in Paris with more than 120 of the Agenda 21 stakeholders who took part in the participative redesign process; - An international conference with more than 500 participants organised in Paris on 4 December 2014 by the French Ministry of Environment. The redesign process won an award at the French Public Innovation Week 2014.

Summary Thematic expertise: 
I have extensive experience over 20 years in environmental local development, sustainable territorial projects and sustainable ways of living. This experience includes: - The construction of territorial projects of sustainable development and Agenda 21 policies in France and Belgium; - Forward-looking activities and scenario development on sustainable ways of living through European research projects; - Research and experimentation on user behaviour change, in particular in the field of energy and water use. I have published a large number of scientific and conference papers and also, for dissemination purposes, created animation movies (TESR – Regional Ecological and Social Transformation of the Nord-Pas de Calais region in France) and illustrated booklets targeted at the participating citizens (Brussels' Molenbeek Agenda 21 participative 'walking diagnosis'). The experience of constructing territorial projects of sustainable development and Agenda 21 policies in France and Belgium as both an experience at multiple levels of governance and across two national territories gave me the necessary background and opportunity to really bring about a significant change at higher governance levels and to redesign the French Agenda 21 national recognition scheme. This one-year process (late 2014 to late 2015) has resulted in two major national forum and international conference in Paris and won an award at the French Public Innovation Week 2014.

Expertise support to local authorities and other stakeholders in designing & delivering integrated and participatory policies

E.1. Knowledge on participatory methods and tools for co-production and implementation of local polices : 
I led the redesign of the French Agenda 21 national policy. I am currently co-organising a large stakeholder process which aims to develop a Sustainable Food Strategy for the Brussels-Capital Region. In both cases, the participative policy-making process needed to involve multiple and heterogeneous stakeholders (spread all over France in the case of Agenda 21 making the organisation of the participation even more difficult). The inventory of relevant stakeholders is key in such participatory processes and this inventory should also be conducted in a participatory mode (i.e. asking already identified participants which additional stakeholders should take part, so progressively completing the stakeholder map). The sharing of knowledge between stakeholders and the building of a shared understanding of the context, opportunities and barriers (i.e. involving them in a forward-looking exercise to develop a desirable scenario for the Agenda 21 recognition process / producing a vision of a sustainable food system in the Brussels-Capital Region). In the process the quality of the interaction between stakeholders is necessary to create a creative, balanced and constructive production and implementation of the policy (i.e. ensuring equal participation, mixing participants frequently, offering them engaging and sometimes playful processes, so avoiding the participation fatigue and stakeholder disengagement which is likely to occur when processes are not smooth and transparent).
E.1 Assessment: 
1 - Demonstrated more than two years of experience in the category E and provided more than one relevant activity that demonstrates knowledge on participatory methods and tools for co-production and implementation of local polices (including proactive outreach to different stakeholders, conflict resolution, mediation of interests, community dialogue, etc.). Also supported by application in C and CV.Provided more than two example that demonstrate the ability to produce concise reports that incorporate learning from exchange and learning activities, put forward good practice and policy messages targeting city practitioners and urban policy-makers (for participants as well as for an external audience).Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

E.2. Knowledge on integrated approach for the design, delivering, monitoring and evaluation of urban strategies/policies: 
The immersive method of ‘residence’ which I have been co-developing with La 27e Région turns out to be a very powerful integrated approach to local sustainable development: the user-centred posture and the long immersion session working with users and all stakeholders ensure the delivery of policies that stay close to users' real needs. The very fact that solutions (i.e. new public services and policy measures) are co-designed by the populations that are going to benefit from them make them more pertinent compared to top-down policy-making. The users' point of view is also a good way to cut across administrative silos, induce transversal collaboration between city administration services and generate integrated solutions. I have experience in the participative assessment of public policies. In particular, I have been involved recently in two assessment processes which are particularly interesting because they are designed to rely on the stakeholders involved rather than (or at least as well as) external experts: - a participative and projective assessment of the Agenda Iris 21 policy for the Brussels-Capital Region in 2012; - a peer assessment of the second Agenda 21 of the Conseil Général de la Gironde in Bordeaux in 2013; In both I organised the assessment process, making intense use of stakeholder workshops, peer review, scenario building and co-elaboration of solutions to produce a positive response and an improved solution instead of a bland judgment.

E.3. Awareness of the main policy and funding schemes for sustainable urban development at EU and national level: 
As Lead Expert of the URBACT Sustainable Food in Urban Communities network I had the opportunities to interact with the participating cities about the possibilities to apply to ERDF-ESF funding schemes. I also collaborate with Brussels Environment, the sustainable development administration of the Brussels-Capital Region to apply to FEDER funding.

E.4. Ability to understand specific local situations and adapt tools and content to different local realities: 
As Lead Expert of the URBACT Sustainable Food in Urban Communities network I supported the 10 participating cities in shaping, structuring and developing their Local Action Plans. The topic of sustainable food reveals particularly strong differences throughout Europe on each and every dimension, whether due to climatic conditions, greater or lesser dependence on agroindustry and supermarket distribution chains, cultural habits, eating patterns, strong involvement or on the contrary critical disengagement of populations regarding quality food, cooking practices, sensitivity to sustainable and healthy diets, etc. The experience gained through the Sustainable Food in Urban Communities network took these differences into account and increased the strong involvement of city inhabitants in growing their own food, in reclaiming land for community gardens, and in developing multiple initiatives to reengage the population (and youth in particular) in cooking and eating better quality and more healthy and sustainable food. I organised the flow of exchanges between participating cities, listing what each city could give and would like to get in terms of good practices, discussing in depth the possibilities and conditions of transfer of successful cases and policies and fostering innovation in cultural interpretation and adaptation to the different governance systems.

Summary Expertise: 
I have extensive experience of projects conducted with local authorities to support the delivery of integrated policies. In particular I work in organising participative stakeholder processes based on the inventory of relevant stakeholders, the building of a shared understanding of the context, opportunities and barriers between them and the organisation of creative, balanced and constructive production, implementation and assessment of public policies (i.e. redesign of the French Agenda 21 national policy; co-organisation of a large stakeholder process aiming to develop a Sustainable Food Strategy for the Brussels-Capital Region; peer assessment of the Agenda 21 of the Conseil Général de la Gironde in Bordeaux). In my work as Lead Expert of the URBACT Sustainable food in Urban Communities network I have demonstrated high sensitivity to socio-cultural differences (i.e. in terms of food resilience and engagement of the population in quality healthy and sustainable diets) between cities throughout Europe and to the necessity to always adapt and often completely redesign the policy solutions to transfer them between different European governance patterns. The user-centred methods I co-develop (i.e. the immersion 'in residence' of small creative multi-disciplinary teams in local the public administration to co-develop projects between civil servants and citizens) allow the delivery of integrated policies, which emerge from the users and match their needs exactly.
Assessment:
