Leading consulting company Accenture has invited innovative students in India to participate in its annual Accenture Innovation Challenge 2018. This year, the company has decided to have two themes – Innovate for Businesses and Innovate for Society, under which students can showcase their ideas and innovations. They can combine innovations and advanced technologies to enable business growth, profit and sustainability which will help in digital transformation, automation, customer interface and many more. For innovative society they can look after citizen’s identity, health care, safety and security, lifestyle etc.
Over the past several years, Accenture has been conducting annual innovation contests for providing students a national-level platform where they can showcase their innovative ideas. The contest is open for any student aged 18 years and above who are pursuing graduation and post-graduation. One can participate individually or in a group of four.
Further, the company has recommended some new technologies which can be used by students to make their ideas more advanced. They have a few categories of new technologies which can be used to power the ideas. One can use cloud to the edge, digital twin, crowdsourcing, big data, cloud computing, immersive experience and many more. Every year more than 20,000 ideas keep pouring in various themes and few of them have been seen running quite successfully in the market.
The last date to submit student ideas is 12th August 2018.
