Economic development of the urban neighbourhoods can be activated by various levers: endogenous development (creation of activities by local resources, and especially by migrant populations, hosting and support of such activities); territorial marketing (image and development theme enhancement); improvement of the urban environmental quality (which inevitably influences a territory’s capacity to attract residents and companies). Thus, district development involves a collection of complementary activities and dynamics, in which every economic and urban management player has a role to play. But can the actions of these various players be co-ordinated so that they contribute to a development strategy that is appropriate and beneficial for each district? The SUN project, via the experiments that it will be conducting, will try to provide some answers to these questions.
