Shaping Future Governments: Global Universities Challenge
As part of its dedicated efforts to evolve governments around the world, the World Government Summit hosts the ‘Shaping Future Governments: Global Universities Challenge’. An integral part of the Annual Gathering, the Challenge brings together over 100 students from renowned universities across the globe and engages them in an innovative competition to improve the way governments work.
About the Challenge
Who are we Looking For?
Global Universities Challenge is by invitation only and exclusive to select graduate students of public policy, government relations, political science, and business administration. Therefore, the challenge targets participation from top graduate universities and schools from each continent. As a participant in the Challenge, each student has been specifically selected to represent their institution. The student is therefore an ambassador of that institution and they are expected to demonstrate themselves in the highest standards of ethics and good conduct during the challenge.
The judging panel comprises high-level government officials and C-suite individuals from renowned corporations.
The judging criteria will be as follows:
An annual award designed to promote, motivate, and acknowledge government technology pioneers for providing global smart solutions to common global challenges.
This year’s prize focuses on how governments are improving citizens’ lives, and the innovations - seen and unseen - that drive and measure success in this REALM.
An award that aims to identify and acknowledge outstanding examples of government innovation that have so far flown “under the radar”, and point to emerging new trends.
