Jean-François JANIN is since 2017 Chairman of URBA 2000, Association created in 2003 as a governmental project to study, through concrete large scale experiments, the effects of new technologies on the day to day life of inhabitants of French territories.
After 30 years of exponential evolutions of the “new technologies”, the pertinent dimensions of the “territories” has been considerably enlarged for questions of energy, ecology and digital transitions, but local pollution, decentralized production of energy as well as quality of education, human relations and health remains a local question which is clearly linked to the density of people living in a walking distance.
The role of local public bodies to find the way towards a sustainable development in spite of the complexity generated by technologies is ever growing. As adviser to the territorial managers, URBA 2000 try to help them to build a consistent strategy and create regular exchange relations with other territories to exchange best practice and risks to avoid.
During his professional life, he was successively :
Engineer in state administration for environment in Paris (1974-1976) and for industrial development, security-safety and innovation in industry in Clermont-Ferrand (1977-1986)

Head of ITS Task force in the Ministry in charge of Transports (1997-2016)
He is graduated of Ecole Polytechnique (1969), ENPC (1974), Paris Political Sciences Institute (1974)
