Groupe SEB, Grand Jury Prize at Fest’Innov 2012
Groupe SEB took part on 11 and 12 October 2012 in the 4th edition of the Fest'Innov challenge at the ECAM School of Engineering in Lyon. The principle: bring together companies and Engineering students in order to work for 24 hours non-stop on a real innovation problem.
The teams from the Group’s Personal Care business unit accompanied the Engineering students in their search for innovative solutions on the theme of hair straightening without damage due to the temperature. The Group’s engineers helped the teams think outside the box so as to enable them to find original and innovative solutions. At the end of the competition, each team was given five minutes to convince the jury composed of innovation experts in the industrial world.
The Groupe SEB team was awarded the Grand Jury Prize in the Sciences & Techniques category for their work on innovation in the context of hair straightening.
Congratulations to the winning team, to all the participants and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
