A key component of ITU Telecom World 2012 is the second edition of the Young InnovatorsCompetition aimed at talented youth aged 18-25. The theme for this year’s competition is “Youth Innovation for Development”. Submissions must be relevant to at least one of the following seven issue areas: Education, Youth Employment, Empowerment of Women, Human Rights, Healthcare, Environmental Sustainability, Transparency, and Cyber Security.
- Are you 18-25 years old?
- Do you have an innovative ICT-based concept or project?
- Are you in need of resources to take the next step?
- Are you a social entrepreneur?
If your answer is yes to these questions, this could be just the competition for you. Any solution using innovative ICT to support development, from concepts to mature projects can compete to win!
Applications are invited for two categories:
- Concepts: well-researched and documented ideas that have not yet beenimplemented; and
- Projects: on-going operations showing preliminary results (e.g. prototypes) and in need of support to scale their impact.
