For the EU wide Idea Challenge, EIT ICT Labs calls ICT entrepreneurs to submit ideas addressing Smart Energy Systems, Internet of Things, Cyber Security & Privacy or Urban Life & Mobility. Applications are open until September 30.

For the second time this year, twelve talented ICT teams have the opportunity to win 320,000 Euro in total, coaching from the EIT ICT Labs Business Development Accelerator and six months office space at one of the Co-Location Centres in Europe.

Additionally, winning the Idea Challenge also means access to the large innovation network of EIT ICT Labs with over 120 partners including some of Europe’s and the world’s biggest ICT companies such as Siemens, Nokia, Ericsson, Orange, Intel, Telecom Italia and Philips as well as leading universities and research institutes.

The first round of the Idea Challenge drew over 300 entries from 25 EU countries. Twelve European start-ups are already working closely with the EIT ICT Labs Business Accelerator to further develop their ideas. German innovators Tinnitracks won EIT ICT Labs Idea Challenge in May 2014 in the category Health & Wellbeing.
