Deadline extended for the the Young Innovators Competition 2012 - Youth Innovation for Development. Register by July 16th to take part!
The International Telecommunication Union, a UN specialized agency for communications and technology, has launched the Young Innovators Competition 2012 edition: Youth Innovation for Development.
The Young Innovators Competition is an integral part of this year’s ITU Telecom World 2012 event, to be held in Dubai between 14-18 October 2012. The event provides a leading platform for high-level networking, strategic debate and knowledge-sharing for the global ICT community. Key stakeholders from across the entire industry ecosystem actively engage in conference discussions and workshops in a collective drive for meaningful ICT solutions to the world’s most pressing economic and societal challenges.
The competition aims to attract dynamic, engaged young people and identify projects with a genuine potential to succeed. But the Young Innovators Programme is far more than just a competition: it builds a cohesive international community of highly-talented 18-25 year-old social entrepreneurs working on ICT-based initiatives from the conceptual stage through to projects in areas of critical relevance to the burning issues facing the world today.
The Young Innovators Competition is THE chance for the next generation of young visionaries to demonstrate their ideas and innovations on this global stage, and show how their fresh digital thinking can change the world for the better. Finalists not only benefit from the international limelight, but also receive an invitation to the event in Dubai, a network of mentors: top level representatives of various sectors, participation in workshops focusing on developing entrepreneurial skills, and the chance to win prize money up to 5,000 CHF in the Concept category and up to 10,000 CHF in the Project category to realize their dreams.
Register for the competition by July 16th on the ITU Telecom World website here.
