|Ericsson Launches Global Innovation Awards 2015|
Ericsson recently announced the 6th Innovation Awards competition for university students who are looking to bring fundamental change in society through technology.
Slated to start next year, the competition's theme is "The Future of Learning". Participating teams should have two to four members that specialize in either technology or business.
To stay true to Ericsson's vision of the Networked Society, competitors should address the following questions with their innovations:
- How can we make learning accessible for all?
- What do we need when lifelong learning becomes necessary for everyone?
- What are the new tools and methodologies when learning becomes an online activity and it happens more and more away from school buildings?
With the emerging trends in mobile connectivity and cloud software, a new technological ecosystem is being created. Those who would like to largely contribute to this change can join the competition.
