Le Carrefour des Possibles in Brittany
The Carrefour has been organized by Fing, the Brittany regional council and Telecom Bretagne since 2005. This is an annual event that identifies the most unusual innovations in digital technology in the region and selects 10 to be highlighted for an evening. They have 6 minutes each to present their innovation to a very wide audience. That is why they are accompanied by the team and experts for the scenarization of their projects.
As an introduction, three spotlights on interesting initiatives were presented:
Terri (s) tories (webzine of the citizens of the far West – in this case, Brittany);
high rise flats and men (web documentary about the Blosne district in Rennes);
Zoomeo 3D (Côte de Granit Rose, north Breton coast).
