Summary/Abstract: The concept of digital social innovation (ISN- new social innovation) is mobilized in various contexts and its retention is possible through several complementary levels. First, at the social level, ISN covers perimeters of collective use, involving a multitude of actors in order to co-create social value (Cajaiba-Santana, 2014, 42-51). Second, at the technological level, they generate an open operating process based on an innovative hardware and software architecture, as well as on specific functional mechanisms. Finally, at the ecological level, ISNs focus on responsible innovation (Van Der Yeught and Bon, 2016, 27-40) and the desire to respond to social and environmental issues. This study falls more precisely in the field of Information and Communication Sciences (ICS). Indeed, this is not a purely technological reflection, but an understanding of the wider integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) and their use in an environment, the context that covers the area of citizen participation in government and the level of involvement of the latter.
