"It is a real honour to be among the winners of the first edition of FitYourTech and to be able to rely on the fine expertise of researchers from the two major French laboratories from the point of view of innovation and artificial intelligence, namely the CEA and the INRIA. This support will enable us to improve our management laws and our predictive maintenance tools thanks to new digital technologies. We are aiming to industrialise our solutions during 2021 and INRIA and CEA will be key partners in making our development prospects a reality!"
Josselin Priour, COO of Powerup
On 25 October 2019, Inria and the CEA launched the Fit Your Tech competition to support two promising technological projects. Open to all, whether entrepreneurs or students in the sector, the Fit Your Tech challenge is a privileged access to an entrepreneurial support network as well as to research in Deeptech (Ia, IoT and data science).
After several months, days of workshops and training supported by the FING, we are very proud and honoured to be among the two selected projects and to win the grand prize! The prize is 6 months of scientific mentoring by experienced researchers supported by strategic and technological support from the Inria centre and the CEA.
Today, we wish to pursue the development of our innovation, notably through artificial intelligence, which will enable PowerUp to promote the exploitation of real battery usage data in the field. It is therefore with great pleasure that we start this new adventure with a desire to evolve and learn from the technologies of Inria and CEA through their collaborators.
