Technology is taking the world by storm, and it is because of the brilliant and innovative minds that we have in our societies. We love to encourage young innovators to be a part of the changing world, and we’re pleased to announce that it’s that time of the year when entries are sent in for the Ericsson Innovation Awards.
Here’s what the organisers have to say:
‘Students from third-level schools, universities and colleges all over the world are invited to submit their innovative ideas.
This competition will give the participants an opportunity to gain a foothold in the business world, while also earning recognition from top leaders and making contacts within the telecoms industry. The top teams will also receive invaluable business coaching and technical insights from our experienced industry professionals.
The theme for this year’s EIA is ‘Learning’, focusing on how to make learning opportunities more accessible… For example, innovating around the tools needed when lifelong learning becomes necessary for everyone, or creating new tools and methodologies when learning becomes an online activity, moving away from school buildings.’
Prizes to be won are:
- First prize: EUR 25 000
- Second prize: EUR 10 000
- The awards ceremony takes place in Sweden, with the costs of invitees covered
- All finalists and semi-finalists will be given the opportunity to be interviewed for a possible internship or permanent position at Ericsson.
- Winners will receive the endorsements and winner’s mark from Ericsson on LinkedIn
