Idea Marathon

The specific focus of the idea marathon is: ICT technologies are changing all aspects of life. The rapid change induces vital questions: What is our vision of the digitized future? What will be the role of humans with ever evolving and improving technologies? How do we expect them to support us? What barriers do we foresee?

This session gives room to participants stemming from all generations and expertise backgrounds - including students - to share their ideas. Experts and students will give feedback on the presented ideas.

Criteria for judging ideas will be:

  • Originality of the idea
  • Fit for purpose objects (transporting the idea)
  • Quality of presentation

Schedule for participation:

September 2018: Registration open

End of October 2018: Submission of short description of ideas for the marathon

November 2018: Registration of interest for ideas submitted by the other age group

End of November 2018: Pairing of adult experts and students by organisers

December 2018: Main event

The winning idea will be honoured with an award which will be handed over at the awards ceremony on 6 December 2018.
