Foundation prize: The Orange Innovation Academy Challenge

The EM Normandie Foundation prize was awarded to the winning team of the Challenge organised by Orange on Tuesday 11 February at the Orange Lab offices in Caen.

Serving digital innovation by relying on the collective intelligence of experienced engineers and digital natives: this is the challenge launched in 2016 by Orange, ENSICAEN and EM Normandie through the Orange Innovation Academy, a unique initiative in France. Building on the success of the first two editions, Season 3 was launched last October with the support of eight engineering students from ENSICAEN and four students from EM Normandie – Startup and Digital Development specialization.

Three mixed teams, made up of students from these two schools, worked for more than 100 hours to propose an innovative and relevant solution before the jury in which the Foundation participated.

The evaluation focused on the innovative character, the relevance of the Business Plan, the technical solution and the quality of the presentation. The winning team was composed of 4 students: Antoine Hemery and Paul Lerick, students from EM Normandie and Quentin Marcotte and Benli Hurault, students from ENSICAEN, who presented the project « EDEL« , an application designed for elderly people who are far from their families and are not very familiar with computers and new technologies.

This very ergonomic, tablet-based application provides them with quick and easy access to various services that can accompany them and make their daily lives easier. Comparable to a HUB, this application allows access to multiple connected objects such as a medication dispenser set to the time of use or a connected bracelet that will alert the family and the emergency services in case of a fall. Added to this are numerous services such as the possibility for the family to know in real time the state of health of the senior citizen, to order medication and much more.

The winners have received a cheque worth €500 to help them develop their application and will benefit from an incubation offered by Normandie Incubation and InSIDE, the incubator of EM Normandie.

« The EM Normandie is now based on 3 pillars: the School itself, which focuses on pedagogical excellence through accreditation, an international dimension and multidisciplinary teaching, the Alumni Association, with 17,000 members, which encourages networking, facilitates job search and communicates extensively outside and on social networks, and the Foundation, which is long-term and is there to raise funds in the general interest, on three fronts:

– Act for equal opportunities and social diversity,

– Promote high-level research, pedagogical excellence (82 teacher-researchers, already 3 Chairs), and the publication of articles in the specialized media to ensure that the competence of our faculty is recognized,

– Encourage innovation, disruption and entrepreneurial mindset, particularly through the InsIDE incubator. »
