Awards 2019

is Live


Who will be the EIA2019 winner?






Be part of the story, join the Innovation.

Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA) is LIVE and Launched for the 2019 season – our 5th annual global student innovation competition. Once again, we’ve partnered with Nobel on our theme, Dive Deeper.

Nature is our largest resource for technology. Some of our greatest technological achievements were not original ideas, they were found in nature. Sonar, swarm logic, wind turbines, even Velcro, were all created from observing natural elements. With 71% of Earth being covered by water, what else can we learn if we look a little deeper. Our challenge is to take the natural technology found within water and learn how to use it to develop innovative solutions.

Ericsson Innovation Awards is a global university student competition that gives students the opportunity to drive changes and bring their ideas to life. If you are a university student working toward your next level of academic knowledge, we challenge you to put your learnings to use and compete for a Grand Prize of 25,000 Euros and a trip to Stockholm to showcase the idea. Regional prizes and professional mentoring are also part of the prize package.

If you want to know more about this year’s competition and theme check our main event page.

Looking forward to this year!
