VEDECOM celebrates 5 years !
The 2019 edition of VEDECOM to the Future, the Institute’s internal Corporate day, took place on Thursday 21 February at mobiLAB. Recently installed in these brand new premises, VEDECOM used the occasion to celebrate its 5-year anniversary with all its employees.
A treasure hunt to get to know mobiLAB
The annual VEDECOM to the Future day began in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for all of the Institute’s employees. Following the traditional welcome over coffee and a croissant, the work groups formed at the 2018 session were invited to report back on the results of their year’s reflection. All the participants were then given a badge and a logbook as they split into teams to go and explore their new building by means of a treasure hunt making use of their artistic, literary, scientific and sporting talents. It was an opportunity for everyone to get their bearings a bit more in the maze of corridors and different levels of this 7,100m² building, of which VEDECOM occupies 75%.
An anniversary under the sign of optimism
The gallant treasure hunters returned at lunchtime ready to start the afternoon in a plenary session. The employees gathered in the PSA Motorsport auditorium, whose buildings adjoin mobiLAB, to attend the dynamic presentation by the positive conference speaker Yves de Montbron who spoke about optimism. “When we think positively, we can find solutions to everything,” emphasised the speaker who maintains that optimism is primarily a state of mind. A theme in tune with this group of researchers and the rapidly growing Institute which, 5 years after being founded, has almost 200 employees, half of whom are under 30 years old.
The day finished with a birthday cake to celebrate five years of VEDECOM and honour its longest serving employees.
