The IT Challenge is an annual competition for students all around the world. The contest is open to students, from any grade. Each University can present as many teams as they like, however but each team needs to be composed of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 members.
This competition encourages students to achieve their personal best just like our teams of Business Technologists are doing. As a forward-looking IT company, we always strive to invest in the future. This competition represents a great opportunity for Atos to show just how much talent exists within the next generation of IT professionals who will shape the companies of the future.
One Atos Challenge Coach from the Atos Scientific Community is assigned to each shortlisted team to help them to take the idea through to proof of concept. The Challenge Coach provides help with technical and business insights, as well as advice to improve their all-important presentation skills necessary for business in the technology world.
A jury, consisting of Atos Executives and Atos Partners selects three finalists at the end of a jury day. During this day all teams that have developed their app, present their solution including a business model in front of the jury.
The three finalists are announced in May, and the overall winner at an awards ceremony in June.
The 2017 IT Challenge theme is about the Blockchain technologies.
