Because student’s creative solutions are every year more and more surprising, delicious and super-useful. Their projects take us out of the daily routine, bring us a breath of fresh air in the team and expose us to jaw-dropping innovative perspectives. Our support for Roger Hatchuel Academy is our little contribution to the future of our country, the trust we are giving to a young man who will attend this Cannes academy and will return in Romania ready to change the world for the better and to increase the level of the creative industry. Roger Hatchuel is also a chance for our country to be represented by a super talented young man in a context where participants come from 30 countries and work together to bind long-lasting friendships.
