TAST'in FIVES Journal 3:

cover picture
This Journal accounts for the overall achievements of the UIA TAST’in FIVES project after 3 years of implementation and in light of the prefiguration of the after UIA phase. The transversal analysis provides some first steps back which, hopefully, can support the project’s partners in the finalisation of the project as well as other cities willing to embark on a similar journey. In particular, it is crucial to stress the approach taken by the project to implement Food-related activities to leverage against urban poverty and the use prototyping as key enabler of testing the project in real-life. Obviously, as the rest of society, the project has now been operating in the new paradigm of Covid-19 pandemic.

Executive Summary

We can summarise the three years of the UIA project with its focus on implementing a range of activities on L’Avant-goût - the prefiguration of the future site. A short interlude with L’Avant-goût de Chaud Bouillon! has bridged the waiting period for the launch of the final Food Court, Chaud Bouillon!, representing an ecosystem of shared values and benefitting from co-construction with neighbourhood residents and partners.

This project has been made possible through the embedding of innovative governance in the heart of the activities:

  • at the level of the Municipality with the embodiment of a project-based approach,
  • at the level of the local area with the multi-level governance encompassing the neighbourhood, city and metropolitan area
  • in the design of the governance of Chaud Bouillon! after the end of the UIA funding.

Urban innovation has indeed been key for the background of the project, which has enabled benefiting from the richness of the partners and flexible approach to daily work. At the same time, the project has seen some challenges in ensuring relevant monitoring, communication – as bound to political support and the uncertainty of the upcoming months for the future of Chaud Bouillon!.

The remaining months of the UIA project will not stop the implementation of Chaud Bouillon! which will continue after the funding: the building will be finalised, the governance – operationalised, and the site eventually open, hopefully in Spring 2021.
