E4C Student Challenge 2022

Climate change is a top priority for United Nations, and it has become a challenge for many organizations and institutions dealing with climate change mitigation and adaptation. Currently, transport CO2 emissions are about 30 % in developed countries which represents about 23 % of the total man-made CO2 emissions worldwide.

The agreement to reduce transport CO2 emissions at least by 50% by 2050 is consensual.

This ambitious goal needs addressing key challenges such as:

  • innovative transportation technologies,
  • low carbon energy,
  • improved transport infrastructure,
  • consumer habits and information,
  • legal instruments…

This challenge aims to address these problems with systemic innovative solution.

Why participate?


This challenge is a unique opportunity to design a project with a strong social impact, while acquiring an interdisciplinary teamwork experience: an asset for your professional life!

More than a hundred students were welcomed for the last edition, divided into groups of 4 to 7, and coming from 9 Grandes Ecoles and Universities.

Some institutions will take this project into account for the validation of credits/projects within the framework of your curriculum.

During the project you will be challenged to:


Apply specific technical skills and knowledge from your academic background in an operational project.



Articulate your skills and knowledge in a multidisciplinary context to develop cross-cutting solutions to a chosen question.


Use a scientific and technical approach to propose solutions that are economically viable as well as socially responsible.
