18 March 2024 L'agence, Innovation / Recherche Share :

The Eco-Innovate Trophies, an event celebrating environmental innovation in the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region, are kicking off their 6th edition with the official call for applications. Organized by the Regional Economic Agency of Burgundy-Franche-Comté (AER BFC), and funded by the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Region and ADEME, these awards aim to highlight and reward the most innovative initiatives in the fields of eco-design and sustainable economy.

The Eco-Innovate Trophies in Burgundy-Franche-Comté

This is a lever to highlight companies of the region regardless of their size:

  • That develop a product, service, or technology considering environmental impacts at all stages of its life cycle.
  • Or that embark on a trajectory towards a virtuous and responsible economic model, more cooperative, focusing more on a service offer based on usage performance rather than volumes.

The idea is to showcase, through inspiring examples, the feasibility of these exemplary approaches, prove their benefits, and encourage other companies to engage in these dynamics.

Visibility, support, and rewards

The winners of the Eco-Innovate Trophies will benefit from increased visibility, winning a video made by a professional, as well as personalized communication support. They will also enjoy a spotlight on their project among the contest partners.

A key partner of the event, the Eco-Design Pole will offer winners one year of membership to their services. Awarded companies will receive a trophy during a ceremony that will take place during the event “Creating Tomorrow, Innovating in Burgundy-Franche-Comté”, on Thursday, November 28, 2024, in Dijon.
