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, eight teams will be put together and given seven 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 six 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 three minutes, and then answer a few questions from the audience (seven minutes). 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.
November 21st, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (during Global Entrepreneurship Week)
Online, through videoconference — and it's bilingual!
Who is it for?
Open to all those wishing to contribute to the world of innovation.
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.
Inno-V 2020 participants will be well surrounded! They can count on the support of two renowned experts in the region – Dr. Sylvain Croteau and Geneviève Bonin-Labelle – who will keep them informed of the current needs in the fields of health and education, respectively.
The importance of cybersecurity has come to the forefront dramatically with the new circumstances of the pandemic. Teleworking has forced companies to rethink their operations and people have increased their online shopping. In order to properly support the Inno-V participants in the creation of a technological and innovative solution that is also secure, cybersecurity specialists will be joining each team.
Here are the specialists who will be coaching you:
After choosing a specific issue and finding a technological and innovative solution for it through the design thinking workshops, the Inno-V participants will have the opportunity to present their concept to recognized leaders of Quebec’s healthcare and education communities. The eight judges — four in health and four in education — will choose the two winning teams who will then be coached by Cilex free of charge.
