Nowadays, cities must meet considerable challenges with respect to health and environmental sustainability. In this context, our Summer School programme will aim to encourage the local entrepreneurial ecosystem of Rennes in the co-elaboration of digital solutions that help make the city healthier and sustainable, for example, in relation to reduced mobility accessibility and protection of urban endangered species.

Target group

We welcome all qualified participants interested in digital innovation and entrepreneurship: Business professionals, bachelor’s degree students, master’s degree students, and doctoral students from any university and industry.

Course aim

For two weeks, participants will work in teams on challenging cases, related to visual recognition techniques to manage protected natural resources, car-sharing solutions, use of public and private data, and network solutions to create smart buildings and smart cities using IoT. These cases will be provided by several start-ups and will be presented by their entrepreneurs.
Along with our international event, you will be trained in key innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) topics, such as problem definition, technological watch, business models, value proposition, user experience, and technology pitch.

In the end, participants will have to present their potential entrepreneurial projects in front of a qualified jury.
