It sounds interesting, but my company doesn’t have a project idea yet… can we still take advantage of this offer?
YES! It is possible to respond to a project offered by an educational institution or take advantage of personalized support (for free!) from the Riipen team to help target a need or define a project to propose to students (examples >>).
