Calling all engineering students! Go for the Valeo Innovation Challenge 2014

30 November, 1999
Valeo is inviting engineering students to take part in the global Valeo Innovation Challenge. The goal is to design equipment that, between now and 2030, will make the car more intelligent and intuitive. Prize money of EUR100,000!!

For the initial selection rounds, engineering students are to develop bold, revolutionary solutions for the society of tomorrow and, as a team, submit a project in English. The 20 shortlisted teams will then be asked to create a model in the format of their choice (physical mock-up, application or other). Each team will be given €5,000 to put their idea into practice and build a functioning demonstrator. The three finalist teams will present their projects to the Challenge jury of Valeo experts and external partners, chaired by Valeo CEO Jacques Aschenbroich, at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The winning team will take home a EUR100,000 prize.


 


In 2012, Valeo was featured for the first time in Thomson Reuters’ Top 100 Global Innovators ranking, reflecting the Group’s commitment to innovation. Most of Valeo’s research and development programmes focus on the design of technologies that reduce vehicle CO2 emissions. The company ranks among the leading patent filers in France and dedicates nearly 10% of its original equipment sales to innovation. With close to 9000 researchers in 20 research centers and 35 development centers around the world, Valeo has developed an array of innovative products and technologies that represent more than 30% of its order intake.


 


The Group plans to hire some 1000 engineers and technicians a year over the next three years, including 400 in France.
