The second-year BiWEM students have taken on the challenge of the Hack-in-Adour innovation jam with excellent results. With their Hash bin solution, the Cash bin team was awarded second prize. Much more than just simple choppers installed under sinks to reduce the amount of organic waste produced by households, the solution activities range from sales to technical troubleshooting and education of the younger generation. The demo (look at the preview below) convinced the jury.
Innovation jams and hackatons are proven management tools for driving innovation and collaboration. Each participant contributes his expertise and opinion in business-critical or societal issues and mix it up with others’ to create a powerful voice. Participating in this initiative was a key opportunity for our students to discover this tool.
Thanks to Philippe Farenc and GRDF for their supports to the BiWEM students.
