BRGM is proud to invite you to attend the new edition of TInnov in person, on Wednesday, 6 October 2021 at Lab'O in Orléans, to imagine the geoservices of the future!

A relaxed and informal day-long event, devoted to creativity and divided into short pitch sessions.

To stimulate your creative spirit, you will be called upon at the TInnov event to develop new service concepts as part of a mixed team made up of representatives of SMEs, large industrial groups and start-ups, but also local communities, engineers and BRGM researchers.

Imagining tomorrow's digital geoservices to better understand and protect the environment

BRGM is the authoritative French institution for ground and subsurface management. It helps shape public policies and provides support to private actors with respect to common issues: energy transition, climate change, prevention concerning natural hazards, the sustainable exploitation of subsurface resources, spatial planning and the circular economy, thanks to the environmental data collected throughout the country. Its mission is to make these data available and to design the facilities and tools to make them usable and accessible.

During this challenge, you and your team-mates will dream up the digital geoservices of tomorrow to better understand and protect the environment.

The best concepts may then be developed in partnership, with full support from BRGM.
