Due to the disruption in the academic activities provoked by the COVID-19 Pandemic in all participating countries, the Konica Minolta team has decided to prolong the duration of the contest. This means concretely:
Already registered teams do not need to register again for participating in the Contest. New teams are welcome!
The Konica Minolta International University Contest gives a unique opportunity to engage in an innovative international cooperation project between the worlds of academia and business. Our proposal is that students make an innovative alternative to a current document or information process at their university, delivering improvements for their institution. Prizes will be awarded to the best proposals on national and international level.
Find out more about the contest and download the International University Contest leaflet.
Entries will be evaluated by juries made up of well-known representatives from academia and business and members of Konica Minolta’s national and international management teams, e.g. the Business Innovation Centre (BIC), a global organisation responsible for the development of new technological solutions for Konica Minolta.
The prize for the winning national team is a 3-day trip to Amsterdam in June 2021 including an invitation to attend the International Awards Ceremony.
"The prize for the winning international team is the course: "Empathize and Prototype: A Hands on Dive into the Key Tools of Design Thinking" organized by the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
