Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International teams of university students to participate in a competition for the best proposals to solve worldwide challenges using technology. Eligible proposals are impactful and innovative solutions to address global sustainability challenges.

Innovations come in all sizes, from simple changes in code that could redefine the networks of the future to complex technological advances that will advance humanitarian efforts across the world. Now is the time to develop your idea to give it the best chance of having an impact by entering the Ericsson Innovation Awards (EIA).

This year Ericsson is challenging students to "Impact our Sustainable Future". Imagine decreasing food shortages while cleaning up oceans or addressing fashion waste while supporting gender equality. Taking inspiration from the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) (https://sdgs.un.org/goals), identify an interconnected challenge to tackle with your team and create a new innovative tech solution that can make a lasting change.
