Ericsson Innovation Awards 2017

Dates: 01/09/2017 - 06/30/2017

This year’s competition theme is the FUTURE OF FOOD and is based on The UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger and Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.

By 2050, the global population is expected to reach 9.6 billion. Ensuring that our food production and consumption is sufficient and sustainable is a major challenge, but also an opportunity to improve lives and the health of our planet. At Ericsson, we have seen at first-hand how ICT can impact the world for the better. How can your idea be a part of this development?

Registration for the Ericsson Innovation Awards 2017 is now closed.
