      All the innovations will be first scanned by an environment expert journalist before being published online. They will be reviewed by a panel of leading figures, institutions and technical experts specialised in eco-technology, energy and cleantech, and sustainability implementation strategy (French Ministry of Environment, French Environment and Energy Agency, Clusters, R&D Institutes...).


    • Showcase Final

      Each of the 20 pre-selected companies will present its innovation and its market proposition in a pitch* to a public jury**. Space permitting, a larger audience of Pollutec visitors will also be able to take part in the session.
