Innovation in all fields
Urbanopolis, the RATP group network of innovation locations
The purpose of Urbanopolis, the RATP group network of innovation locations, is to share innovative ideas with residents to keep the city moving forward.

Innovation is a strategic priority for the RATP group. The creation of Urbanopolis addresses this challenge.
Federated by the Hub, this network of Labs at the core of the Group departments and subsidiaries aims to capture the best ideas and speed up innovation. The objective is very simple: to test the viability of an innovation, come up with its business model and lay the foundations for its fast and optimal development.
For this Urbanopolis is supported by six innovation venues in France and in Morocco.

Labs to speed up innovation

Urbanopolis is made up of 6 Labs:

  • The Hub 
    To develop and accelerate strategic, innovative or digital initiatives – Paris-Maison de la RATP 
  • The Atelier
    To design the systems and infrastructures that will support the city – Val de Fontenay
  • The Fabrique 
    To trial innovative services with our passengers – Paris metro République
  • The Factory
    From idea to reality: making the digital idea concrete – Noisy le Grand 
  • Casaroc
    To develop new passenger services – Casablanca
  • The Platform
    To develop new digital services around mobility – Noisy le Grand

An accelerator of innovation, this network will optimise our ways of working and open us up much more to the outside world - particularly in connection with start-ups - and will enable us to bring together all the Group's energies to promote our know-how better.
