IAU île-de-France (IAU-IDF) was established as a public interest organization on August 2, 1960. In 1982, it became an associated body of the Regional Council of île-de-France. The unique contribution of IAU-IDF is the provision of the vital resource hub for regional development, drawing on a wide range of resources and indicators developed by a multidisciplinary team of 150 experts.
Its core values are strong awareness of the public interest, dedication to planning for the future, rigorous standard and independence of thought, and the commitment to sharing expertise and making the results of its work widely available.
