The 6 winning designers will be hosted by 6 para-sport clubs in the Ile-de-France region to carry out research aimed at designing or improving sports objects or equipment for disabled amateur or professional athletes.

 

The winners will receive a €20,000 grant to help them carry out their project (including travel, accommodation and equipment costs, as well as funding for mediation and co-creation activities).

 

To apply: e-mail a CV, covering letter and a dossier presenting the applicant's approach and existing production to olympiadeculturelle.idf@culture.gouv.fr and aurelie.lesous@culture.gouv.fr before midnight February 18.
