Have a dream that you think will change the world? Have an idea that you think will impact and make the communities around you better? Or do you have both? Why not them make your ideas go live by participating in ScienIT a competition organized by HCL Sri Lanka.
ScienIT, conceptualized by HCL Technologies, is a first-of-its kind program for the youth in Sri Lanka. This is a fantastic opportunity for the young minds to come up with innovative solutions for things that matter in this world. We at HCL Technologies Sri Lanka believe that ScienIT will unleash the potential of many aspiring minds who would like to lead from the front.
At HCL, we believe and foster the spirit of new ideas and nurture them through the culture of Ideapreneurship. It’s for this reason our employees are referred to as Ideapreneurs from the day one and it is the same spirit that we want to nurture with ScienIT as well. Registrations are now open for the first innovation competition of ScienIT, a program designed to crowdsource technology and innovation in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in Sri Lanka.
This innovation competition aims to attract, identify, and nurture ideas from bright students across Sri Lanka. HCL will select, nurture and seed-fund the best ideas from students from ideation to execution. Each of the ideas submitted will be evaluated based on originality, innovation and application of technology, impact, and sustainability.
The winning team in the innovation contests will receive LKR 600,000 and will be invited to join a dedicated webinar as panelists while the runner-up team will receive LKR 400,000. Members of both teams will be offered internship opportunities at HCL Sri Lanka. The ScienIT program’s monthly discussion forums will also provide participants with a regular exchange of thoughts, ideas, and deliberations on the latest developments in science and technology. They will also offer youth opportunities for mentoring, networking, and collaborating with students, academicians, and industry veterans.
The deadline for submission is Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022.
