The team is composed of students and staff of Mines Paris, in particular four of its research centres, CEMEF, CRC, OIE and PERSEE, all based in Sophia-Antipolis. The team aimed to participate in 2020 but due to the cancellation of the edition, its first participation was in 2021. The team works in tight collaboration with engineers from Symbio Academy (Symbio’s internal training program), who developed from scratch a fuel cell system for our team.
