The 2nd edition brought together 33 students from European partner universities (among them students from IUAV, LAUREA, ISCTE) and 17 students from the Gustave Eiffel University. They were able to work in teams on the issue: “How to support behavioral changes for more sustainable mobilities?”

After two on-line sessions and a week-end of intensive face-to-face project development supported by coaches and entrepreneurs, they pitched their project before the jury.

The event took place on the 27th of March 2023 at the Ministry of ecological transition in the presence of:

🔹 Clément Beaune, Minister Delegate for Transport

🔹 Fabienne Keller, Member of the European Parliament, European Parliament

🔹 Patrice Vergriete, President of AFIT France

🔹 and Gilles Roussel, President of the Gustave Eiffel University.


The European Hackathon is supported by the French Agency for transport infrastructure funding (AFIT).

Team 5 for the Be Hold project received the first prize, which includes students from Laurea, IUAV, Gustave Eiffel universities. They has been invited to the European Parliament on May 10 to re-pitch the Be Hold project to MEPs.

For the third edition in 2024 Gustave Eiffel Université wish to turn the event into a Blended Intensive Programme thereby participating students and staff (coaches, Jury committee) from partner University would benefit from Erasmus funding for their mobility to Paris.
