Join the

Digital Innovation Challenge


The Digital Innovation Challenge is an annual essay competition for students to explore how digital innovations influence business and society. Take the opportunity to explore a new interesting topic or develop your current work further to win great prizes!

The challenge is open for final year undergraduate and master’s level students in any field from the Partner Universities. Each category will have one global winner. Essay submissions are done centrally by the partner universities - unfortunately, we cannot process unsolicited submissions.

The essay should discuss one specific dimension of digital innovation such as institutional, organisational, social or economical aspects of digital innovation. Submissions that take a multidisciplinary approach are also welcome.

How to Participate (for students)

Submit your essay to a contact person in your own university that will choose local winners for the global competition. Please note that the deadline for your submission will be set by your own university. For further details, see Eligibility and Rules.
