Actulab was a very great and enriching experience for me. Initially, I got interested by a competition with one of my friend, Aurelien, simply for the pleasure of working together, but we rapidly got in the game! The competition was open, so we were able to test and compare different techniques to see the various angles of the problem, every time with our motivation being more driven by the competitive spirit, not only by the prizes (we were also interested by it!)
After the competition, Actulab kept contact with us, and we had the chance to productionize our solution during an real event. Actulab was also a great way for me to develop my network, and a nice addition to my resume. I was contacted by Desjardins Insurance following the competition, where I’m now working full time since January 2016.

My participation at the first Actulab competition bring me a lot on the professional side. In addition to improve my computer programming skills. I had the chance to increase my professional network. The time I invested in working on the competition was largely rewarded by the visibility I got. I recommend Actulab to everyone who want to demonstrate his competencies to employers in solving real-life problems.

For me Actulab was full of great things! First of all, competitions allow you to push yourself by working in teams on applied projects for a real organization. You can apply what you learned in school, and improve your knowledge. As a student, if you win an Actulab competition, you will meet with business representatives, get opportunities to present them your results, and to gain visibility for building your network for your future career. I recommend Actulab to every student!

Desjardins General Insurance Group was happy to partner with Actulab from its creation, and to contribute in stimulating collaborations between enterprise research and academics. For us, it was a great opportunity to try the open innovation principles. In our first Actulab, we were really impressed by the passion and the devotion of the participants, as well as with the great quality of the proposed solutions to the real problems we are living with. It was also a nice opportunity to get visibility and to promote research in the P&C insurance field, and a great way to recruit promising employees.
