The objective of IT Challenge is to promote and encourage innovation in an open environment amongst best-in-class Universities and students as well as support young innovators in taking their ideas forward.
The challenge for the 2011 Atos IT Challenge focused on Smart Mobility.
In particular, we were looking for participants to consider: “which applications could leverage smart mobile devices to enhance people’s lives through real time contextual information?”, and to be able demonstrate this by building a solution and showing the result in real-life.
The contest was open to students enrolled in one of the partner Universities during the academic year 2011-2012.
The winning team have been awarded an Olympic experience at the London 2012 Olympic Games, including travel costs, tickets for some events, “behind the scenes” tours… The winning and 2 finalist solutions will be exhibited during the London 2012 Olympic Games in Atos’ Olympic Marketing Suite.
In addition to the above, all members of the winning and finalist teams have been offered the opportunity to apply for an internship within Atos.
