The creative sprint

How does the creative sprint work?

A very short format

The creative sprint is a short and intensive form of collaborative project in which students of different levels and profiles work together to develop innovative design proposals.

Partnership with the city of Dompierre-sur Yon (Vendée) to revitalize and upgrade the city center

Objectives for the partner

Developing visions in the form of concepts using a specific problem provided by the partner as a starting point to explore the potential for innovation.

Teaching benefits

Students develop their capacity to think up forward-looking scenarios and make them tangible by means of concepts.


The project takes place over 5 to 10 days as a creative sprint.
