Ericsson Innnovation Awards


What could the world learn from you? The Ericsson Innovation Awards focuses on you, the student, and gives you the opportunity to be a fundamental driver of change. You’ve spent the last few years developing ideas, putting theories to the test and exploring challenges as a pathway to your future career in the Networked Society. Ready for the biggest test yet?

This year the competition was all about cities. Today, more people live in cities than in rural areas, and by 2050, about 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to reside in urban areas. Ensuring that our cities are creative, connected and sustainable is a major challenge but also an opportunity to improve the lives of billions of people along with the health and future of the planet itself. What is your next big idea?

To learn more about the challenge, visit our Ericsson Innovation Awards page.
