Thirteen French cities apply for NFC test zone funding

A total of thirteen cities have responded to the French government’s call for proposals for three to five more cities to receive funding to run large scale NFC field trials similar to the Cityzi project running in Nice, according to Le Journal du Net.

The thirteen applicants are the cities of Agen, Bordeaux, Caen, Lille, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Pessac, Rennes, Strasbourg, Toulouse and Troyes plus the la Manche regional council.

The French government will provide funding to cover part of the set-up and engineering costs of running NFC trials in the successful cities, although the cities will be required to fund operational costs themselves.
