  • Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics, and Thales, members of the Software République are launching their first open innovation challenge
  • The competition will start on September 6 and will be open to start-ups, entrepreneurs, SMEs, research institutes, academics, or anyone wishing to become an actor of a new European mobility
  • Candidates are called upon to submit their projects for sustainable and intelligent mobility based on data provided by the members of the Software République
  • A unique opportunity for participants to see their ideas become reality with the support of six major companies and to join the Software République ecosystem

Paris, September 2, 2021 – Since the announcement of the creation of the Software République in April 2021, the six members have aimed to develop tomorrow’s mobility solutions and systems.

To stimulate innovation within an open ecosystem, Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics, and Thales, are together organising a new competition called: ‘The Mobility 4.0 Challenge by the Software République’. This is the first time that six major European companies have joined forces to provide data, technical tools, Hardware and Software prototyping platforms, knowledge, and expertise, giving candidates the opportunity to create disruptive, value-creating use cases for mobility in Europe.

Candidates will work on one of the five themes below using data provided by the members of the Software République:

– Improvement of the user experience related to Electric Vehicles

– Multimodal accessibility

– Intelligent Transport

– Cybersecurity

– Open ideas

This is a unique opportunity for all participants to pitch their ideas to major mobility and digital players. The selected candidates will have access to the data necessary for their project and will be supported by experts from the six companies to help them formulate their value proposition and develop the prototype of their idea.  Winners will be integrated into and incubated by the Software République, with privileged access to R&D facilities. In addition to potential industrial opportunities, the winners will benefit from media exposure at an internationally renowned technology exhibition and office space at one of Software République’s partner sites.

The jury is composed of representatives of the six members of the Software République:

– Sophie Proust, EVP Group Chief Technology Officer, Atos Group

– Laurence Montanari, VP Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systèmes

– Frédéric Vacher, Head of Innovation 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, Dassault Systèmes

– Jean-Marc Lafond, IoT portfolio Director, Orange Innovation

– Luc Julia, Scientific Director, Renault Group

– Gilles Le Borgne, EVP Engineering, Renault Group

– Frédérique Le Grevès, Executive Vice President, France Public Affairs, STMicroelectronics & President and CEO, STMicroelectronics France

– Stéphane Royer, Group Chief Data Officer, Thales

Participants have six weeks to apply, from September 6 to October 13, 2021. Based on a pre-selection, the best applications will be accompanied in a prototyping phase from October 20 to November 20. Participants will then have two weeks of preparation, from November 20 to December 6, to present their project to the jury. The final and the announcement of the winners will take place in December.
