To all university students, we would like to enlighten you on Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA) and hope to inspire you to take the step to bring your ideas to life and also compete for a grand prize of 25,000 Euros.

Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA) is a global university student competition that allows you to drive changes and bring your ideas to life. Specifically, there we challenge you to come up with innovative solutions on how Information Communication Technology (ICT) can change the future.

The theme for this year’s EIA is ‘Reclaim the Future’. With it, we put a focus on climate action and ideas committed to addressing the current and future challenges of climate change, primarily on how radical changes can be made to our creation, processing, and consumption of energy, through innovation. Your submitted ideas will involve the use/creation of ICT technologies, which provide access to information through telecommunications (this includes the internet, wireless networks, cell phones, and other communication mediums).

The competition runs from August until December and is broken down in 3 phases. Phase 1 has already started with the registration.

Registration date: August 1 – September 30.

Comprehensive information, guidelines to the competition, and all its prizes can also be found on the EIA website.

This only leaves us with one more thing to say: Ready, set, go!
