Have you heard of the The Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA)? This global competition is your chance to address a major technological challenge and win BIG – including a cash prize of €25,000 (euros)!

The Problem: Half the planet lives without access to the tools, information and resources that many of us rely on every day. Your challenge is to address this problem with a bold technological solution.
