Nivitec commits to against the Covid-19 pandemic during the Hackaton Versus Virus

Our co-founders and engineers Jonathan and Vincent definitely have good ideas 💡

Indeed, they took advantage of these last 48 hours to find innovative solutions to the Covid-19 crisis as part of the Hackaton Versus Virus organized entirely online. This is how their team came up with the proposal of a project to fight the fake news related to the current pandemic. The idea would be to provide social media users with a quick and clear method of checking the authenticity of the information they read.

Nivitec takes part to the Festival du Jazz et du Film d’Altitude of Vercorin

Curious cultural mishmash, CinéJazz2336 takes its name from this mythical summit that is Crêt-du-Midi. This year, a round table on the theme of the mountain rescue was on the agenda with the presence of representatives of the Groupe d’Intervention Médical en Montagne (GRIMM), the Institut de Formation et de Recherche en Médecine de Montagne (Ifremmont) and Nivitec!
