Ready, set, innovate !
The ALD Driver Experience Challenge was launched in November.

More than 230 participants attended the launch in Paris at Ecole 42 or followed it live as it was streamed. Numerous teams from France and abroad notably the United Kingdom, Russia and Brazil, made the trip. Employees, students, mentors and jury got together to talk about the various team's projects.
