ACTION #4 : MOOnSHOT PROGRAM

Cracking fascinating sustainable breakthroughs

 
 

A moonshot, in a technology context, is an ambitious, exploratory and ground-breaking project undertaken without any expectation of near-term profitability or benefit and also, perhaps, without a full investigation of potential risks and benefits. 

The term "Moonshot" derives from the Apollo 11 spaceflight project, which landed the first human on the moon in 1969. "Moonshot" may also reference the earlier phrase "shoot for the moon" meaning aim for a noble target.

Google has adopted the term Moonshot for its most innovative projects, many of which come out of the Google X, the company's semi-secret lab. Google moonshots include a driverless car, a neural network, robots for the manufacturing industry and Project Calico, a life extension project. 

Transforming an innovative idea responding to a global stake into a tangible and operational thing is a high-level sport. That’s why we play it with sprints. Each sprint is a moonshot. 

Our moonshot program focuses on stellar innovation in the spectrum and perfect alignment of global sustainability, human durability and common good. If a technology leaves someone behind, it means it is not smart at all.

To be selected into the moonshot program, a project or proposal must:

  1. Address a huge problem

  2. Able to propose a radical solution

  3. Use breakthrough technology

By gathering a multi-profiles team in a room (from philosophy to coding experts including physicians and sociologists), we developed a drastic methodology that enable us to make a solution emerge the fastest way by disruptive thinking mechanism and ultra-skills gathered together.

On this program, we work with public institutions, global companies, NGOs.
