INSTN is Qualiopi certified
On the 27th of September, 120 students from Albert Einstein High School, in Bagnols-sur-Cèze (France), participated in the second edition of the Hackadem, the digital hackathon for decommissioning hosted at the CEA Marcoule site and supported by INSTN.
The aim? To design a solution that responds to a pre-defined nuclear decommissioning scenario. In the morning, final year Science and Engineering (SI) and Science and Technology of Industry and Sustainable Development (STI2D) students worked in groups, assisted by four start-ups from the Occitanie region - OREKA Solutions, GAMBI-M, Innowtech, Elements Nuclear - as well as second-year students of the Nuclear Cleanup and Industrial Sites Development Masters (Master Assainissement nucléaire et valorisation des sites industriels), co-founded in 2015 by INSTN.
In the afternoon, the high school students presented their project to a jury panel of professionals, at the Marcoule Institute for Separation Chemistry. The winning groups were awarded their trophy by Anthony Cellier, Member of Parliament of the Gard region, Jean-Yves Chapelet, Mayor of Bagnols-sur-Cèze, and the CEA.
The Hackathon is a creative process frequently used in the field of digital innovation. It provides an opportunity to tackle technical challenges representative of those encountered in real professional situations and to imagine innovations, methods and original technological approaches to meet them.
