Apur’s mission is to document, analyse and develop forward looking strategies which address the urban and societal evolution of Paris and Greater Paris (Métropole du Grand Paris). It is :
- A tool at the service of urban development public policy makers and development on Parisian and metropolitan scales;
- A pathfinder in setting up the Métropole du Grand Paris while taking into consideration its characteristics and competence as defined in the text of the Maptam Law for the modernisation of territorial public action and the assertiveness of metropolises;
- A platform for exchanging information, sharing construction and distribution with all the key players in Paris and the Métropole du Grand Paris, technical syndicates, public establishments, municipalities and its citizens.
Its missions are decided upon each year at a general assembly where a detailed work programme is adopted which includes all the studies, observatories and data processing that Apur is responsible for carrying out and making known to its administrators and the general public.
Apur is also involved in missions beyond its social role when it responds to calls for tenders put out by Ile-de-France or foreign municipalities.
