After a 2020 edition organized remotely due to the health crisis, the IFP School hackathon, Challenge Innov’Action, was back for its 3rd edition, this time on site.
From December 6 to 7, 150 students from the class of 2021, divided into 24 multidisciplinary teams, pooled their energies to propose innovative solutions to the challenges set by the School's industrial partners: Air Liquide, AVEVA, Axens, ExxonMobil, HyJack, Schneider Electric and TotalEnergies.
For this new edition, the students had to take up challenges around six themes: innovation and intrapreneurship, prospecting and retaining talent, societal demands, digital transformation, capitalizing on skills and the intercultural dimension.
The jury, made up of the School's industrial partners and upper management, awarded its prize to the "R3" team, which worked on the decarbonization of refinery sites, a challenge proposed by Schneider Electric.
The "Green together" team won the public's heart. It responded to the challenge put forward by TotalEnergies, which aimed at mobilizing staff around actions in favor of the ecological transition.
"Once again, our students have really invested themselves in this challenge, showing their ability to innovate together to meet the challenges set by companies," concludes Perrine Babin, Challenge Innov’Action project manager.
