Idélab's idea competition 2022

The competition runs until March 28 and is open to all MDU's employees, researchers and students.

With the idea competition, Idélab want to promote idea development, innovation and entrepreneurship at MDU. The competition highlights and rewards good ideas, which stimulates the idea owners to dare to further develop their contributions.
All ideas are welcome, nothing is too big or too small. It can be about different services, products, social innovations - and everything in between! It is the idea that counts and not how far you have come with it. The better you can describe your idea, the greater chance of winning

The contestants compete with their best ideas. Those who advance to the final round will have the opportunity to pitch their idea digitally in the form of a film for a jury. The grants are assessed based on the criteria economic sustainability, competitiveness, societal benefit, height of ideas and innovation, market size and sustainability.
The prizes are awarded by the jury that selects the winners in the categories: Best Idea, Best Innovation and Best pitch. The prizes are SEK 40,000 in pre-study funding from Idélab's partner Almi Mälardalen, prize money of SEK 30,000 that comes from Brita and Otto Larsson's memorial fund and prizes from Profeel.
Idélab offers free guidance if you want to further develop your ideas.
