XMU successfully wraps up finals of 3rd “Internet Plus” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition for College Students
On July 2, the final of the 3rd XMU “Internet Plus” Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition kicked off in the Keli building of Siming Campus. This competition fell into two categories: innovative ideas and early entrepreneurship. As a result, 60 teams stood out from the quarterfinals, vying for the trophy in the finals through presentation and oral defense of their projects.
The projects of the participating teams covered various fields including agriculture, manufacturing industry, information technology service and cultural creativity. Through diversified forms, each team introduced and showcased their preparation process from perspectives of social needs, advantages and prospects of their projects.
Many of the projects in the category of innovative ideas are closely associated with our times as well as major policies and guidelines of the government. Some projects are for charitable purposes, aiming to realize the maximum social justice and sharing of social resources. Some projects are grounded in reality with mature commercial ideas and effective risk assessment. As for the category of early entrepreneurship, many of the teams, which mainly consist of undergraduates, postgraduates and doctoral students, have established their own companies and started to gain profits. They have carried out investigations and surveys in order to design products to meet the demand in everyday life.
Up to now, many teams from this competition have applied for patents and IPRs for single pieces of technology. Furthermore, they have engaged in win-win cooperations with industry-leading companies by converting technologies into shares to quickly turn losses into gains. Meanwhile, XMU colleges and advisors also gave their strong support and guidance to facilitate the successful development of the innovative products by a variety of means including technology licensing and thesis writing tutoring .
It is reported that the competition was launched in March and would last for four months, during which period, 6 golds, 12 silvers and 18 bronzes would be awarded. Afterwards, XMU will recommend excellent projects to participate in provincial and national competitions. We keep our fingers crossed for XMU students to achieve greater success and win honors for their alma mater.
