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.

Konica Minolta’s proposal is to allow students to analyse a document or information workflow at their university and propose an innovative alternative that delivers improvements for their institution. Prizes will be awarded to the best proposals on national and international level.

In every participating country, entries will be evaluated by juries made up of representatives from both academia and business and a member of Konica Minolta’s national management team. The jury will select one team as national winner.

The prize for every winning national team will be a 3-day trip to Amsterdam during April 2018. During this trip students will share their time and their experiences with other contest participants and with Konica Minolta staff in an exciting international business/academic environment. Additionally, the teams will have the chance of presenting their proposals at the International Award Event, where an international Jury will select the International Winners. The International Award Event will take place at the Konica Minolta Experience Centre in Amsterdam.

The prize for the winning international team is a trip to the Web Summit in Lisbon during November 2018.

In the exciting environment of the Web Summit the winning team will witness a seething mass of start-ups pitching ideas, investors looking for the next Google or Facebook, tech thinkers talking about the latest trends, and the odd celebrity giving their visions for the future.
