EIA: Girls Who Innovate
An Ericsson Innovation Awards competition for girls aged 9-18 is organized on the day of international Girls in ICT Day. It is our hope that this competition will inspire young girls to innovate while thinking about how the use of technology can lead to zero hunger, and also motivate them to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Our world’s population is growing and every day there are more of us on Earth. We need to make sure that we produce enough food for everyone, and also that we find ways of producing and consuming food that don’t destroy our planet. This is where YOU come in! New technologies and inventions are being created every day – now it’s your turn to think of ways that we can improve the future of food.
The results are in! Winners of the Ericsson Innovation Awards: Girls Who Innovate competition have been named.
An Ericsson Innovation Awards competition for girls aged 9-18 was organized as part of Ericsson’s recognition of international Girls in ICT Day 2017. It is our hope that this competition will inspire young girls to innovate while thinking about how the use of technology can lead to zero hunger, and also motivate them to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
Throughout this competition, girls from around the world submitted their innovative ideas on how technology can help the way we produce food and reduce world hunger. Project submissions consisted of a short description of the concept and its visualization.
As a first step, a jury shortlisted the best entries in three age categories, and then Ericsson employees were invited to cast their votes for their favorite ideas.
Here are the winners:

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
