Your team must consist of two or three students.
Ideally, you should try to create a team of people with different backgrounds and/or from different nationalities (engineering, sales, design, sociology, academic training, accounting, finance, law, taxation, media, etc.).
Experience has shown that multidisciplinary teams often produce the best ideas, since innovation often comes from the meeting of different skills and talents...
You can even use the Studyka.com platform to find other team members and benefit from an even more enriching experience.
The Imagine the Campus of the Future Challenge will involve a three-phase process.
You will submit an initial deliverable, which the panel will use to select the best ideas. You will be asked to submit your documentation online, outlining your initial ideas and introducing your team.
You will need to upload this document to the platform before 03/15/2015.
• Submission of the final documentation
The pre-selected teams will need to deliver their final documentation, which must include a detailed project presentation and an executive summary.
You are free to choose the format of your presentation, although we strongly recommend that you include a visual illustration of your project. For example, you could attach a demonstration video, a functional or visual model, a prototype of the tablet or smartphone app associated with your service, etc. In short, you can include anything you feel is relevant.
Your project must be clearly presented and must contain no more than 20 slides or pages.
You will need to submit this selection document no later than midnight on 26 April 2015.
A 6th team will have the privilege to be selected for the great finale of this challenge! To be selected by the public vote, it's easy! You have to upload on your teamspace an executive summary of your project. It will have to present your idea, your team or your project...
You will have until April 19, 11:59 p.m. to upload your executive summary on the platform.
From April 20, to April 27 (9.00a.m. Paris Time Zone), share the link you'll receive by email to make people vote for your project. The team with the most vote will win the chance to present their project to the final jury!
The panel will assess each entry, and five teams will be selected as Challenge finalists to attend the final in early June 2015. The 6th team will be selected by the public vote. The final ranking will be decided once the finalists have pitched their projects to the panel of managers and executives from partner businesses and institutions.
You will have 10 minutes to present the major aspects of your project. There will then be a five-minute question and answer session. You'll need to be clear, concise, precise and persuasive!
1) Team diversity: although diversity is not a requirement to take part in the Challenge, teams made up of individuals with different backgrounds (engineering, business, design, etc.) and from different institutions will be at an advantage.
2) Innovation and originality of the proposal (in terms of practices, technologies, business model, process, etc.).
3) Scope of the proposal: compatibility with the overall Paris-Saclay project and user requirements. Number of users concerned: students from different institutions, residents, employees, researchers, etc.
4) Feasibility of implementation.
To maximise your chances of getting noticed by the Challenge's partner businesses, remember to upload your CV to your profile. This will allow the partners to access your CV and get in touch with you!
