What is the Techno Innovation Challenge ?
The challenge is focused on designing and building STEM-related innovative solutions (products) which solve a real world problem, within a dedicated 4-week period of time. The challenge event has four-week duration that is mostly performed over a weekend for universities students to team up, design, build and pitch their innovative solutions on the following topics: digital, agroindustry and energy
In 2017, 126 students from 26 institutions participated, forming 16 teams with more than one third of female participants. 88% were engineering students. The topics were: IOT, agriculture and food and IT. In 2018, we had 188 candidates who formed 26 teams from 16 institutions mainly in engineering (82%), with a female participation of 25%.
This year, we have invited partner companies of the Techno Innovation Challenge to express needs for innovation related to the sustainable development in Cambodia in the relevant fields. Experts from these companies will provide mentorship to students during the 4 weeks of the challenge.
