Valeo launches the 4th edition of its “Valeo Innovation Challenge 2017” competition, offering students from around the world and their academic teachers the opportunity to become players in automotive innovation.
Participants are required to come up with an innovation which would, between now and 2030, make the car and the way it is used more intelligent, clean, intuitive, green and fun.
The prize fund is huge! A first prize of 100,000 Euro will be awarded in each competition category, as well as a second prize of 10,000 Euro.
The two competition categories are:
- Technological Innovation
- Idea for new ways of using cars
Comprising teams of two to five people, students from any discipline can take part by presenting a relevant, innovative project in English.
The aim is to stimulate the students’ creativity, enabling them to form multidisciplinary teams.
The Valeo Innovation Challenge is part of Valeo’s innovation strategy, supported by the company’s annual Research and Development budget of over 1 billion Euro.
