iim vivatech - At Viva Technology, IIM Students Scouted for the Best Innovations

When web and multimedia school IIM, academic partner of VivaTechnology’s 2018 edition, has its students go on a innovation tour, they come back with a plethora of digital content!

On one side, the event which makes Paris the capital city of worldwide tech. This is no coincidence if the CEOs of Facebook, Microsoft, IBM or Uber decided to attend.

On the other side, students from IIM, the first French school dedicated to the third industrial revolution job industry.

The result? Two days of immersion in the future of digital, to meet, test, take pictures, write… A total of over 400 IIM students benefited from a privileged access on all premises of the exhibition and took advantage of this opportunity to act as innovation scouts.
