The challenge

Valeo is proud to announce the 24 teams selected to move in to the next phase of the competition!

After intense deliberation, more than 70 Valeo Experts and external scientists came to a decision. Discover the 24 shortlisted teams on this page.

The countries represented among these teams are: China, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Russia and Spain, covering 4 continents.

Congratulations to all of them!

The selected teams now have until July 13 to test, improve and prototype their ideas using a €5,000 grant from Valeo. When this stage is complete, eight finalist teams representing both categories combined will be chosen to present their project to a grand jury in Paris.

The winning team in each category will take home €100,000 in prize money and the second-place teams in each category will receive €10,000. In addition, the first-place team in the technological innovation category will be able to join a start-up incubator to give their innovative project a further boost in its development.
