Ericsson sub-Saharan Africa Innovation Awards 2016

The theme of the Ericsson sub-Saharan Africa Innovation Awards 2016 is “The Future of Food”. Sub-Saharan Africa faces a rapidly growing population and as a result, food production will need to increase significantly. Young innovators and start-ups are encouraged to use this opportunity to make a real difference by using technology and ICT to make a positive contribution towards sustainability in the food sector in sub-Saharan Africa. Whether your innovation impacts food production, packaging, information availability or distribution, demonstrate how your idea will change the future of the food industry as we know it.

An entry into the Global Innovation Awards 2017 (Note that only students are eligible for the Global Innovation Awards)

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
