The future of food

Ericsson Innovation Awards 2017

Welcome to the Ericsson Innovation Awards Competition, a global student competition that gives you the opportunity to develop your innovative ICT ideas in collaboration with Ericsson experts.

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?
