INGERA² is rallying approximately one hundred engineering professionals and students in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region for a 24-hour INGE’Innov challenge on 2 and 3 February at INSA (French national institute of applied sciences).

Eight companies (including Mobility, specialised subsidiary of VINCI Energies) and five engineering schools will cooperate on this challenge, pooling their know-how with a view to innovating to meet future business needs. During this novel innovation marathon, engineers and students will have 24 hours to form teams and devise a solution to an innovation need presented by the eight companies.

The 24-hour INGE’Innov challenge is a way of breaking down barriers between specialities and generations by creating mixed teams that must work together for the first time to meet new engineering needs.

About the INGERA² cluster

INGERA² was created in 2015 and is the only cluster dedicated to all specialist areas of engineering services. It brings together industrial, energy and engineering companies, as well as universities. It accounts for more than 102,000 jobs in France and €260 million in sales revenue. The INGERA² cluster aims to promote and mobilise the engineering sector, fostering co-development and breaking down barriers between different specialities. In so doing, it helps to actively develop the know-how of engineers at the heart of the innovation value chain.
