Reminder on the French national competition: “The road safety organized for its 4th edition, two competitions of innovation in road safety. The Innovation Award, intended for companies, aims to label innovative products and services that make the road safer. The Innovation Challenge, for its part, rewards the three best student initiatives, in partnership with the Bureau National des Élèves Ingénieurs (BNEI), the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (CGE), the Conférence des Présidents d’Université (CPU) and the Conférence des Ecoles d’Ingénieurs Françaises ( CDEFI).
