Altarea Cogedim is a founding member of the Palladio Foundation.
Product of an original initiative launched by companies working in the real estate industry, the Palladio Foundation, was created in 2008 around the challenge of building the city of tomorrow and its public spaces. Under the auspices of the Fondation de France, it gathers together all actors involved in this construction (elected officials, real estate professionals, those working in other sectors affected by urban planning issues, researchers, members of federations or associations, media outlets) and invites them to debate these issues. It supports and accompanies those who will build tomorrow’s cities, whether they be students, researchers or young professionals.
In 2012, with the support of Altarea Cogedim, the Palladio Foundation developed:
- The Observatoire Palladio, a web tool created to attract talent to the real estate industry and city construction, and to open up these professions.
- The Palladio Institute for Advanced Studies in Real Estate and the City, whose first reports were published in November 2012, providing a unique resource base to help guide private and public actors in their decision-making.
- The Palladio Research Division, which organized the first international research symposium on real estate and city construction. This event produced the first overview of this research in France and abroad, united existing research teams, and mobilized businesses to action take better account of the challenges of research.
The Palladio Foundation also awarded eight grants of €10,000 to doctoral students. It sponsored the SIMI Junior Real Estate Prize, the AREIM Prize, and the forum on real estate industry professions.
