** MOVED TO Q1 2021 ** Invitation to University Sponsored Student Teams to Participate in the 2020 Business Case Competition “Accelerating the Diffusion of Innovation in High Value Manufacturing”

** MOVED TO Q1 2021 **

The Open European Network for Enterprise Innovation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM) hereby invites student teams of any size and from any faculty and sponsored by their professors at universities located within the EU28 member nations to participate in the 2020 Business Case Competition.

The panel will be chaired by Professor Piero Formica (Professor, Senior Research Fellow, Innovation Value Institute, Maynooth University, Ireland) and further panel participants currently are Professor Leif Edvinsson (New Club of Paris, Sweden), Dr. Sami Kazi (Senior Principal Scientist, Research Strategy and Foresight at VTT, Finland) and Lynne Schneider (CEO Entovation International Ltd., USA).

ENTOV-HVM aims at strengthening Europe's innovation capacity and at fostering innovation in higher education, business and the broader socio-economic environment of the European Union by identifying, developing, and sustainably implementing measures to disruptively accelerate the value creation of innovative ideas in high value manufacturing from inception to late adopters and laggards in markets at individual, organizational and systemic levels.

The business case study competition will be held in September 2020 as a virtual event hosted by ENTOV-HVM. The competition will consist of student teams from multiple universities across Europe evaluating an industry case study in order to then compete in recommending actionable and “Next Practice” research-based interventions for achieving the value proposition thereof.

Participating teams will be trained in relevant analysis approaches and then collaborate online (with expert guidance) over a three-week period in order to arrive at recommendations. The recommendations will be presented to, and evaluated by, an Evaluation Panel consisting of seasoned representatives from industry and research, including participants of the case study itself.

Results of the competition will form the basis for the submission of a paper to a leading international research journal and shape scholarship grant requests for the winning team participants if desired. The winning team will furthermore receive a cash prize and the opportunity to run a six-week Living Lab at a selected industry partner of ENTOV-HVM for a theme of their choice.

We look forward to hearing from you and more details will be published over the coming weeks.
