Exceptional circumstances

Given the particular situation in Ukraine, the members of the jury proposed that the Xavier Beulin Grand Prix be exceptionally divided into two parts, a decision validated by the sponsors. Half of the prize will therefore be awarded to innovative projects by young farmers in Ukraine.

 

 

Xavier Beulin Grand Prize - Innovative Farmers

This prize is aimed at farmers who have set up an exemplary and innovative project integrating digital technologies on their farm. The project must obviously be digital-based.

It can be a pilot solution installed on the farm, in the absence of an existing solution on the market, a more economical solution, the modification of existing equipment to optimise it or add new functionalities, the installation of sensors for the recovery of new data, for control, etc.

The winner will receive a prize of €5,000 and a one-year membership of AgreenTech Valley, which will entitle him or her to personalised support, reinforced by the innovation ecosystem of Orléans Val de Loire Technopole and LAB'O.

The call for sponsorship is still open to partners who are members or part of the ecosystem, to support this initiative (free contribution).
