JCDecaux S.A. (Euronext Paris: DEC), the number one outdoor advertising company worldwide, focuses on dialogue and immersion in the Open Innovation ecosystem at the third Viva Technology show.

On Thursday, 24th May, JCDecaux awarded startup Nextérité, a collaborative platform providing real-time information on transit conditions, as winner of its “Open Data for new urban services” challenge, launched on 6th March. Five finalists had the opportunity to pitch their solutions on stage at VivaTech before the jury of data and smart-city experts chose Nextérité for the inventiveness of its solution and the ambition of its team to transform cities into more connected spaces.

VivaTech is also an opportunity for JCDecaux to unveil its new Nurture programme to the 8,000 startups attending. Nurture officially launched in France on 15th May. It targets fast-growing startups and offers urban communication solutions to help turn these innovative concepts into powerful and recognised brands.

Final stage to the dialogue that has flourished between JCDecaux and the VivaTech ecosystem since its creation three years ago, there will be a Job Dating day on Saturday, 26th May involving the group's HR and IT experts.

Albert Asséraf, Executive Vice-President, Strategy, Data and User Innovation at JCDecaux France, said: “This year, JCDecaux’s presence at VivaTech is anchored more deeply than ever in a dynamic of openness and exchange with the startup world. We are convinced that collaboration between corporates and young ambitious firms is a powerful way to accelerate innovative projects. This is why we are delighted once again to be part of Viva Technology, the global Open Innovation fair that is becoming an unmissable event.”
