Epitech Experience 2025 – Focus on the Innovative Projects of our 3rd year students
At the beginning of 2023, our third-year students presented prototypes of their Epitech Innovative Projects (EIPs), which they will have to materialize over the next two years as part of the Epitech Experience 2025.
A few months after diving into the Moonshot Pool, the starting point of the Innovation Cycle, our third-year students presented the first versions of their Epitech Innovative Projects (EIPs) at the beginning of this year. These projects materialize in the form of computer solutions aimed at addressing global issues covering a wide range of topics, from climate to society, including health and the economy.
Over the past few months, our Tek3s have gone through several phases across all Epitech Technology campuses. First, they ideated their EIPs, following the Moonshot Pool, with the aim of putting their ideas down on paper. Then, they moved on to the Forward phase, the second phase of the Innovation Cycle, which involved prototyping these projects, in other words, building them from a technical point of view to obtain a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) that holds up.
The third phase, which took place at the beginning of this year 2023, consisted of pitching these solutions to professional juries, with the understanding that they are still destined to evolve until the Epitech Experience 2025. To hold you over until then, here’s a brief overview of the projects proposed this year by our third-year students.
