The 11th Innovact Campus Awards are now open to applicants!
Students, young French and European researchers alike, come and take part in the 11th Innovact Campus Awards! Organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Reims and Epernay during the Innovact Forum, this European competition has been awarding the most innovative and bold start-up projects presented by French and European students for 11 years.
Supported by the European Commission, the Innovact Campus Awards reflect the business-mindedness, innovation, dynamism and boldness of European youngsters today!
Made up of professionals from all around Europe – company managers, journalists, scientists and professors – the jury will award the applicants displaying imagination and innovation in their start-up initiatives – whatever the product or activity.
To find out more about the projects, the jury members will meet with the finalists at their stand directly on the first day of the Innovact Forum. This is an opportunity for the finalists to convince the jury of the viability, sustainability, pertinence and above all innovative nature of their project.
All students may take part, on their own or as a team, whether or not as part of their course. Projects must either be in the setting-up stages or already doing business. The possibility of winning is not influenced by the reputation or prestige of your university or graduate school, but it depends on the interest of the project presented.
At the end of the competition, the winners will receive grants and benefit from media coverage, particularly on the websites www.innovact.com ; www.lentreprise.fr and www.ffbde.fr, as well as through the dozens of articles that will be published across French and European press.
As every year, the finalists will be invited to take part in the 17th European Forum for Innovative Start-ups, Innovact 2013, on 26th and 27th March 2013 free of charge (travel and accommodation expenses paid by Innovact). A unique opportunity to meet over 1,500 professional participants from 20 countries and to share their experiences with more than a hundred other young European innovative enterprises.
Prize-giving will take place at Innovact on Wednesday 27th March 2013.
Closing date for returning application forms: Friday 8th February 2013.
