The Groupe SEB Academy 2015-2016 challenge finale took place on Thursday 17 March and Friday 18 March at the group’s headquarters in Écully.
Nearly 20 teams had the chance to present their projects to all of the group’s employees in a marketplace-style event. Offering plenty of things to discover as well as tastings and even experiments, the teams showed off their imagination to win over the jury members!
The participants also had the opportunity to meet Harry Touret, Director of Human Resources at Groupe SEB, during the announcement of the results.
Five teams were selected at that time to participate in a creative immersion experience at the SebLab and to prototype their project for the event finale.
