Information

This challenge will put you in the shoes of engineers working in a creative design office who create products in response to briefs given by local industrial players. You will be divided into multi-disciplinary teams competing to address a topical issue. At the end of in-person sessions, you'll present your project to a panel of experts and be eligible for an entrepreneurship prize (usually access to a pre-incubation pathway).

The theme for this challenge is “Together on every pitch”, echoing France's hosting of the Olympic Games in 2024. There are three main themes, each associated with a challenge provider:

  • Sport Tourism & Territory (Mission Bassin Minier)
  • Corporate sport (Toyota motors - Toyotomi)
  • Sport for all (Decathlon)

During the in-person week of the challenge, you will follow the schedule below:

  • Day 1 - At the start of the challenge, you will interact and conduct interviews with professionals, users and stakeholders. You will gather as much information as possible to contribute to your creative process.
  • Day 2-3 - As a team, you will then define your target, the specifications and the objectives of your innovative project, using the design thinking methodology.
  • Days 3-4 - You will then  propose a preliminary project and convince people of its relevance and feasibility by providing original technical solutions (supported by a prototype, mock-ups, a budget, etc.)
  • Day 5- Each team will present its innovative project to a panel of experts.
