Audencia welcomes the FAMAE foundation

26 September 2017
On Wednesday, September 27, Audencia will welcome the FAMAE foundation, which will present a CSR challenge about waste. The winner will be awarded a prize of one million euros.

The FAMAE foundation organizes its first invention competition to allow resourceful inventors to create simple and innovative products or services. The goal is to substantially improve our daily life and lower our expenditures, while strongly reducing our environmental footprint.


This first competition focuses on waste:


"Your waste have value: find a product or a way to reduce or recycle as much as possible the two tonnes of waste produced each year by a family of four. If need be, use existing solutions."


The targets are:

  • higher education or the research community (universities, engineering schools, design schools…) ;
  • companies (SMEs, start-ups…) ;
  • the non-profit community (NGOs, organizations, social entrepreneurs…)



The competition will consist of three phases from November 2017 to June 2018. Both French and English will be accepted as working languages.

The jury will be composed of FAMAE members, experts of the field and representatives of the partners.


The FAMAE foundation will present the competition in details on Wednesday, September 27 in the room 262 at Atlantic Campus.
