CALL FOR INNOVATIONS IS CLOSED SINCE THE 30TH SEPTEMBER 2016
Though the organization of the Games as a whole is no doubt an extraordinary launching pad for the innovation world, the candidacy alone is a real opportunity for project promoters. The technical brief for Paris 2024 will bring promoters to center stage, provide them with the challenge of finding answers to new expectations and will give them the visibility that would be impossible to acquire without such a vast, forward-looking project. But in order for Paris to be awarded the right to host the 2024 Games, we need your support, to show that the City of Light is the worldwide heart of innovation and that innovation is at the very heart of our candidacy – in short, we need you!
If Paris is awarded the right to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games in September 2017, the innovation process will only accelerate with the launch of programs for open innovation and experimentation. The idea would be then to test and deploy these innovative ideas before, during and after the Games.
Our candidacy truly represents a commercial opportunity like no other!
The call for innovative projects was open to all promoters with a mature project: startups, SMEs, student projects, corporate teams, community groups, non-profits…

4/ BE THE PUBLIC FACE OF INNOVATION
The best projects, selected by Paris 2024 and its partners, are to be showcased on the website www.paris2024.org, in events organized by Paris 2024 and featured in any publications linked to the Paris 2024 candidacy. As such, you will become the centerpiece of our candidacy.
To apply, you must take about 15 minutes to fill in the two sections of the application form – the first a public section, which will form the presentation of your project to be published on the platform, the second a private section, which will be viewed solely by the team at Paris 2024.
