Session Abstract

Drahi X-Novation Center, "la fibre entrepreneur": a space dedicated to entrepreneurship and innovation at the heart of École polytechnique.

"La fibre entrepreneur" is the first center entirely dedicated to entrepreneurship and innovation at École Polytechnique. This new 2,500 m² space provides a unique spot for creation, experimentation and prototyping, education, incubation, and dialogue with investors. With a design based on the most modern accelerators in the world, this center operates in close interaction with partner incubators (Télécom ParisTech, HEC ...) and with Paris-Saclay institutions promoting technology and research towards industrials.

This space promotes the emergence of projects creating innovative businesses with a high potential on the Paris-Saclay Campus. It is a lively, friendly, open space that aims to :

- Host all of the X's promotion and training related to innovation and entrepreneurship in one place. The site includes an incubator, an accelerator, a prototyping area (with a fab lab, an e-lab, and equipped laboratory areas), an area for co-working and an area dedicated to organizing events and conferences.

- Encourage contact between the different groups on campus (students, researchers and laboratory staff, teachers, entrepreneurs, alumni and external businesses), teamwork and the circulation of ideas.

- Bring together the École polytechnique's work in developing innovation and supporting entrepreneurship in a single emblematic site.

Serge Chanchole, director of the Innovation Center will present the Drahi X-Novation Center and its different programmes, and take the participants on a tour of innovation spaces. There will be opportunities to exchange with in residence startuppers.
