The Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) has launched its annual Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA) 2021, a global competition with a grand prize of €25,000 that offers university students around the world the chance to develop new, innovative ideas with support from Ericsson experts.
Pakistani University level students can also participate in this competition to win 25,000 Euros and gain international exposure.
The theme in 2021 is “Bridge the Digital Divide”. The digital revolution has transformed the world, enriching lives in countless ways yet half the planet lives without access to the tools, information, and resources that many of us rely on every day.
Ericsson Innovation Awards is open to students currently enrolled in University studies. Students from around the world are invited to enter the competition and are encouraged to form diverse teams of two to four members.
Teams must register and submit their ideas by August 5th at 11 AM GMT and the first 50 submissions will receive extra guidance for refining their ideas.
Each of the seven regional winners will receive €1,000 cash prize and in some cases, additional special recognition and prizes offered within respective regions.—PR
