A CO-CREATION CONTINUUM

Virtual event 

November 21st 2020

The Inno-V 2020 event, in partnership with the City of Gatineau, aims to rally the community to find innovative and technological solutions for the COVID-19 challenges. The current pandemic context and its new circumstances (e.g., teleworking, gradual return to the workplace, etc.) entail several challenges. In order to solve these issues, 8 teams will be put together and given 7 hours to come up with a technological solution to a specific problem in the field of healthcare or education. The teams will be assisted by experts in both fields  to design their business model and, thanks to the collaboration of In-Sec-M, each group will be joined by a cybersecurity specialist. Inno-V is an event built to foster a culture of co-creation and knowledge sharing. 

 

Each team will consist of 6 participants grouped according to their field of interest (healthcare or education). The team’s goal will be to present an innovative concept to the judges, other teams and members of the public in 3 minutes, and then answer a few questions from the audience (7 min). The two winning teams—one per field—will win the award of best conceptual project and will then have the chance to take that project from the validation stage to the incubation phase.

 

In order to better support the Inno-V participants, two Cilex team members will take part in the event. They are the ones who will then help the winning teams in the development and commercialization of their innovative idea.

When?

November 21st, 2020, from 9 am to 4 pm (during the Global Entrepreneurship Week)

Where?

Online, through videoconference and bilingual

Cost?

Free!

For who?

Open to all those who wish to contribute to the world of innovation.

Award*

One team per field will win the chance to take their project from the validation phase to the incubation stage with the assistance of the Cilex team, to carry on the innovation continuum. In essence, this consists of a weekly follow-up with a coach from the Cilex team for a period of three (3) months.

Individual prizes for participating will also be offered courtesy of our gift partners

 

*The award is not convertible to cash or exchangeable.
