24 hours of innovation

24 hours of innovation

Les 24 heures de l’innovation (24 Hours of Innovation) is an international competition that involves more than 1,000 students in 10 countries on five continents. The concept was the brainchild of ESTIA, a French engineering school, in 2007. Since 2010, a Quebec edition of the competition has been organized and co-ordinated by Professor Mickaël Gardoni of ÉTS. The aim is to find solutions to some of society’s stickiest problems and challenges presented by companies. Each team has 24 hours to find and flesh out a solution to the chosen problem and package it in a two minutes video. The competition, which is open to the public, is held twice a year, in November and May, at ÉTS. Since 2012, the May edition has been part of C2-MTL.
