The city takes five innovative tracks to tackle the vulnerability of the local economy towards emerging technologies: 
1.    It promotes “smart specialisation”, aiming to make creative-based industries – one of the new competitive advantages of the city- and related knowledge intensive business services (KIBS) more competitive and engaged in societal change.
2.    It enables the transition to work 4.0, providing training and skills development for the work of today and tomorrow, especially for work cycles under high risk of automation.
3.    It re-imagines work, connected to both social values and technical potential.
4.    It seeks to improve the spatial conditions of the local economy, through the regeneration of the CREIC area by transforming it into a knowledge-based new part of the city.
5.    It introduces experimentations for systematic changes for local value added chains and the new social contract governing the future of work by introducing a local label acting as a financial tool.
