The Ericsson Innovation Awards 2022

The Ericsson Innovation Awards 2022

The Ericsson Innovation Awards 2022 offers university students around the world the chance to develop new, innovative ideas with support from Ericsson experts. The theme for 2022 is ‘Impact our Sustainable Future’.

Innovations come in all sizes, from simple changes in code that could redefine the networks of the future to complex technological advances that will advance humanitarian efforts across the world. Now is the time to develop your idea to give it the best chance of having an impact by entering the Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA).

This year we are challenging you to ‘Impact our Sustainable Future’. Imagine decreasing food shortages while cleaning up oceans or addressing fashion waste while supporting gender equality. Taking inspiration from the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs), identify an interconnected challenge to tackle with your team and create a new innovative tech solution that can make a lasting change.

Winners in this year’s challenge will receive €25,000 for the first place, €15,000 for the second place and €5,000 for the third place €1,000 for regional winners. Mentorship sessions will also be offered to all winners including semi-finalists.  Ericsson employees in Malaysia are also available to provide guidance to students who want to submit entries.

More details of the competition are available here and in the competition guide. We look forward to seeing their ideas come to life.
