The winning team will take off for an 8-days trip on the West Coast of the USA to discover big companies in the field of innovation and American Universities!

Whether they are handy, curious, creative, optimistic, passionate or simply motivated, every young person between 15 and 18 year old was invited to show us their view of tomorrow’s world, whatever their pathway or schooling!

Inno’Cup Jr enables those young people, by team of 2 or 3, to present an innovative project on one or several of those themes: art and design, health and well-being, the Social Economy, ecology, means of transportation and town planning, architecture and everyday life. To go to the contest, each team has to make a 3-minutes video to be then posted on the innocupjr.fr website.

Under the patronage of the Embassy of the United States of America in France and the Ministère de l’Education Nationale, de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche (Ministry of Education and Research), this contest has been organized by the Casemate, Minatec, Xerox and Grenoble Ecole de Management. It aims at encouraging young people to move toward innovation. This competition is thus a new opportunity to stimulate, to fast-track and to guide young innovators and creators in the perspective of promoting their ideas.
