4)   The Top 5 Leaderboard (600 CHF): Alicia, Nicolas Pierret, Alexandre Gubert, Cesco and Pierre Jacquet.

Yesterday, the authors and contributors of the Top 10 ideas took part in a convivial ceremony and sushi party at the Rolex Learning Center to celebrate the end of the challenge. After a foreword by Mrs. Corboud Fumagalli, Vice-President of Innovation and Technology Transfer at EPFL, and an introduction about Nitto by Mr. Moshizuki, Head of R&D, the jury and experts rewarded the winners with a hand written diploma in English and Japanese, their vouchers and a little Japanese gift.

Following the 3 weeks of intense online brainstorming, it was a great opportunity to meet in person, exchange and discuss future innovations and projects on environmental sustainability. 

With 81 ideas. 757 comments and 527 votes, this third Fusebox edition has been again a great success and we would like to thank Nitto, the community, the jury, the experts, the moderators and Unipoly for their engagement!

Let's meet again in September for new Fusebox adventures!
