The call for projects for the 6th edition of the City’ZEN Challenge, an international inter-school competition, ended on November 29, 2021.
The jury, composed of members of the Berger-Levrault management team, selected, not without difficulty, the 12 finalist project teams that will participate in the second stage of the competition.
This same jury selected 6 finalist projects which were attributed to student-teams motivated to develop innovative ideas.
Each team will be supported by a Berger-Levrault coach whose main role is to contribute to the development of each innovative concept. The close collaboration between the students and the coaches will last 6 months, until the presentation in front of the final grand jury scheduled for June 22, 2022.
A big thank you to all the students who worked on quality projects but were not selected.
