India – The registration phase for the eighth “Henkel Innovation Challenge” has just started. Under the slogan of “Create. Learn. Grow., Henkel is inviting students from all over the world to submit their visionary ideas for sustainable products and technologies.
Students of any discipline from 28 countries have the opportunity to take on the role of business development manager and register at www.henkelchallenge.com with their innovative ideas up until 10 December 2014. It’s simple to take part. To enter the international competition, the students need to form a two-person team and create a concept for one of the three business units Adhesive Technologies, Beauty Care or Laundry & Home Care. The task is to identify market trends and challenges for 2050 and develop ideas that are aligned to the Henkel sustainability strategy. The teams must convince a jury of Henkel managers, and the best ones will take part in the international final to be held in Vienna in spring 2015. The winning team will receive an around-the-world ticket worth 10,000 Euro. The second and third-placed teams will also receive travel vouchers. All three teams will have the opportunity to meet Henkel CEO Kasper Rorsted in person and present their innovation concepts.
