U21/普华永道创新挑战赛报名通知

(English Follows)

各位研究生同学:

我校为U21大学联盟成员之一。近期,U21联盟与普华永道合作举办研究生创新挑战赛活动,现面向我校研究生召集应战学生。具体事宜通知如下:

背景介绍

U21/普华永道(PwC)创新挑战赛U21联盟与普华永道共同组织,面向U21成员高校研究生提出实际工作中的全球性挑战问题,由学生提出解决方案,并以三分钟视频的形式来提交答卷。期望参赛学生运用学习到的知识,发挥专业技能,向潜在雇主展示自己的能力。具体内容,可参见U21网站

挑战主题

We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work; automation and 'thinking machines'are replacing human tasks, changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people. But what will the future look like? PwC has developed four scenarios in their 'Workforce of the Future' study (www.pwc.com/people): a Red World where innovation rules; a Blue World where corporate is king; a Green World where companies care, and a Yellow World where humans come first.

Assuming you find yourself on a journey that looks like it ends in a ‘Red World’ scenario (where Innovation Rules), what are the pros and cons for you? What skills will be important for individuals to thrive in this world, and how do you plan on adapting to it?

U21/PwC Innovation Challenge Competition

Background

SJTU is one of the U21 member universities. Universitas 21 and PwC, two globally-focused organizations, have come together to offer unique opportunities for U21’s global student groups and PwC’s clients across its network of firms. This partnership will create international networks, giving U21 students exposure to new work opportunities. Through this partnership, U21 students will have an exclusive chance to communicate their specialist knowledge, skills and talents to potential employers.

 

This online competition will set contemporary, globally-important challenges to which U21 students ‘pitch’ online solutions to the companies thus offering them earlier access to potential employers before the end of their studies, coupled with additional employability and training opportunities. This will also allow U21 students access to ‘real-world’ situations to which they can apply their knowledge and test the value of their technical skills, research ingenuity and talents in the world of work.  

For more information, please check the website of U21.

Competition Theme

We are living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work; automation and 'thinking machines'are replacing human tasks, changing the skills that organisations are looking for in their people. But what will the future look like? PwC has developed four scenarios in their 'Workforce of the Future' study (www.pwc.com/people): a Red World where innovation rules; a Blue World where corporate is king; a Green World where companies care, and a Yellow World where humans come first.

Assuming you find yourself on a journey that looks like it ends in a ‘Red World’ scenario (where Innovation Rules), what are the pros and cons for you? What skills will be important for individuals to thrive in this world, and how do you plan on adapting to it?

Eligibility

The competition will be open to any registered full-time graduate student in SJTU, including international students.

If the student’s presentation draws on work/research that is being/has been conducted under contract with an outside sponsor, they are advised to discuss the related contractual terms of confidentiality and intellectual property with their supervisor(s) before participating in this competition.
