Ideation Workshops

People with disabilities meet people who are interested in finding innovative ideas together.

The Innovation Booster Technology and Special Needs offers workshops to facilitate the identification of innovative ideas.

Through this workshop, people concerned by the disability meet people interested in the theme. Based on the needs identified in the first phase, these people imagine innovative solutions. These concrete innovation ideas can be submitted to the Innovation Booster and give rise to real projects.

Participation in these workshops is free.

  • people with disabilities

  • engineers
