  1. New Student Innovators Club at LLN

  2. 2 HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED Where great ideas come from

    ? How to find them ? Why university do not teach innovation ? Can you force creativity ?

  4. We are a young club of innovators born in September

    2016, with currently 6 members. The concept is simple: each week, we gather in groups to think about innovative solutions to specific problems affecting society. At the end, each group presents its ideas to others. During these sessions, we learn about divergent thinking and how to approach a problem from a unique angle, basically how to get “out of the box”. We also have the chance to be located in the CEI, near the Yncubator, a startup accelerator. OUR VISION FOSTER INNOVATION AMONG STUDENTS TO CREATE THE NEXT WAVE OF CHANGE MAKERS 4

    3 hours every week to brainstorm about specific problems affecting society, e.g. traffic jams, pollution in Smart Cities, plastic waste, etc. MIDI DES INNOVATEURS We also meet for a lunch every ~2 weeks where one member presents a topic he has chosen : What is Biomimicry ? Why Innovate ? How to pitch ? It is also the occasion to talk about the internal structure and our future projects. CAFES NUMERIQUES It is a new project that we just started. Every month, we will organize these events. It will basically be a talk given by 3 experts on a given field related to the numeric field. All of this, under a relax atmosphere. CONTESTS Our members take part in various contests such as EBEC, Morpheus Cup, LSM Cup, etc. And it is something we continue doing as it is a perfect opportunity to test the skills we are learning during our sessions.
