Valeo Innovation Challenge 2016

 

An opportunity to make a major impact 
Nearly 1,400 teams from 89 countries around the world participated in the 2015 edition of this global student competition. The prize money was a great incentive for the six finalist teams, but the challenge was mainly an opportunity to take their idea to the next level. “The most exciting thing about winning the Valeo Innovation Challenge is that now we can really make our idea into a reality,” says Fang Yongkun, the leader of Team FalconView, the first-place winner in the 2015 competition.

Valeo Innovation Challenge 2016 

The aim of the contest is to reward an innovative automobile-related project (technological innovation or idea for new ways of using the car) that is the product of the imagination of students worldwide.

Valeo launched the 3rd edition of its contest, the "Valeo Innovation Challenge 2016", which offers students from around the world the opportunity to become players in automotive innovation. They are required to come up with an innovation which would, between now and 2030, make the car and the way it is used more intelligent, intuitive, green and fun. These students are being asked to develop bold solutions for the society of tomorrow.

Through this contest, Valeo is showing that innovation lies at the core of its DNA and that Research and Development is a priority for the Group. It is the guiding force behind the 11,000 engineers who innovate each day while inventing the car of tomorrow. The Group is seeking to raise student awareness of the challenges that careers in the automotive industry can offer them.
