Makers and developers, take part in the second edition of the Connected Challenge!


Join the IoT ecosystem by participating in the online hackathon about connected objects and imagine a concept before february 28.



Open innovation for the IoT

Makers, developers, startups, fab labs and large companies have come together to take on the challenge of revolutionizing the world of connected objects.

After the success of the first edition, the Connected Challenge aims to be bigger, more concrete and have a greater reach. Come and perfect the prototypes that have been lying around in your garage for months or finally get your most ambitious applications up and running!

Two paths for innovation!



Design your own prototype for a connected object with the help of a team and the equipment available!


Using the APIs from other partners, develop an innovative application!

What is the Connected Challenge?


Meet the right people to give your project the boost it needs


Soon you’ll be swimming in prizes such as a trip, connected objects and the right tools to develop your project.


Meet professionals and get your foot in the doors of your dream companies
