For the second consecutive year, La Fondation Dassault Systèmes has won the national ‘2022 CSR Impact Award' in the Skill Development category with its “Made In 3D: Seed the Future Entrepreneurs” program.

The 2021-2022 season of “Made In 3D: Seed the Future Entrepreneurs” saw students from 50 schools from 29 states and several Union Territories form start-ups to design and build innovative products such as :

  • a mosquito drone, Dr. Mosque, for remote blood testing,

  • a cattle cleaner and massager, Pashupal, to reduce farmers’ efforts in cattle maintenance,
  • an insect catching device, MISTI: Modern Indoor Solution for Trapping Insects,

… and many other products that show each problem has a solution when you start thinking outside the box.
