Frequently asked questions


How many credits/ percentage of final grade can I expect from the Explora certificate if considered as a part of my Master project? How to submit to this assessment process?

Students can decide to develop their own prototype as part of their “Master Project”. If so, they have to submit it to their thesis director for approval.

I am not an MSc student but not in Business Management, can I still register?

This is not possible, you must be physically on the Lille campus every Thursday for workshops and coaching sessions.

When will we meet our corporate mentor?

You will meet your corporate mentor on September 20 during the first workshops. You will then agree on a work plan for the 4 following months. In January or February, all companies will be present for a « demo-day » in Paris to test your prototypes and network.

Is there a time dedicated to the project scheduled every week? 

Workshops, coordination meetings and conferences will be scheduled every Thursday. Aside from that, teams will need to work autonomously and in close relationship with their corporate mentor.

Can I choose my teammates or not?

You can choose your fellow team members only if they are registered EXPLORA participants and are interested in the same project. The teams will be defined on the 17th September. If you registered for Explora Sustainable Innovation, you will discover your project and teammates on September, 13th.

I don’t have any digital skills or sustainable innovation background yet but I’m really interested to learn, is this a disadvantage?

No, quite the opposite!
EXPLORA has been designed to suit all levels.
