What is the Ericsson Innovation Awards?
Technology fundamentally transforms the ways we organize our lives, businesses and societies. But only recently has the connectivity and computational power once reserved for industrial applications become intensely personal – embedded not just into our mobile devices and cloud software, but into our everyday expressions, interactions, relationships and desires. The result is an unprecedented capacity for individual empowerment &innovation.
The Ericsson Innovation Awards sets out to challenge today’s youth with not only changing their world but the world of thousands of others through harnessing the transformational power of ideas, technology and connectivity.
What possibilities for innovations will arise as a result of this development?
Ericsson Innovation Awards 2015
This is the first year that Ericsson has shifted their focus to both the technology and business factors that surround innovation . 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 C-levels and making contacts within the telecom industry. The top teams will also receive invaluable business coaching and technical insight from our experienced industry professionals.
The topic is learning. Learning in its widest sense; how can we make learning accessible to all? What tools do we need when lifelong learning becomes necessary for everyone? What are the new tools and methodologies when learning becomes an online activity – and when learning is happening more and more away from school buildings? Do you have an idea about the future of learning?
