Engineering students around the world have less than one month left to take part in the global Valeo Innovation Challenge. Projects must be submitted by February 14, 2014 to try to win the first prize of €100, 000.
300 teams from 40 countries and representing 254 universities have already signed up on the website dedicated to the global Valeo Innovation Challenge.
The goal of the Valeo Innovation Challenge is to design equipment that, between now and 2030, will make cars more intelligent and intuitive. Students taking part in the Challenge must develop bold, revolutionary solutions for the cars of the future.
On April 15, 2014, the 20 teams shortlisted by the Valeo experts will be named. Valeo will grant each team €5,000 to create a functioning prototype. The three teams that submit the most innovative projects will be chosen on September 17, 2014 to present their projects to a jury chaired by Jacques Aschenbroich, Valeo Chief Executive Officer, and comprised of members of the Group’s senior management team, as well as eminent figures from the worlds of science and design. The jury will designate the winning team, which will receive €100,000, with the second and third-place teams each receiving €10,000.
