The La Transfo source code is open source* and comprises the protocol for creating innovation laboratories within regional and local authorities; the first experiments in setting up La Transfo labs took place between 2016 and 2020. The protocol consists of implementing seven principal actions: set up an experimental framework (ce), establish a multi-disciplinary approach (mp), pace program rollout (p), involve and train the public agents (a), work on the basis of concrete practical cases (cc), build support from the surrounding administrative ecosystem (e), and anticipate/prepare for the future lab (fl). The purpose of this site is to describe these actions and to provide feedback on their implementation in the various municipal/regional public services engaged in the protocol. The goal is to allow everyone to appropriate these actions and adjust them to his/her respective context.
* In data processing, the source code is text that presents the instructions
making up a program in readable form, written in a programming language.
In an open source community, the program developers make the source code available to other programmers to encourage the reutilization of software developed elsewhere, by means of the open-source software framework BRICKS (Building Research for Integrated Cultural Knowledge Services), and thus to further develop and improve software over the long term.
