ICTalent Awards is the competitive showcase affiliated to the Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT! Students from all disciplines are given the opportunity to display their best work to employees, media, Partners in Education- and Innovation, fellow students and secondary schools. Everyone is welcome with a (free) ticket!
ICTalent literally offers a platform to share knowledge and inspiration. Our ICT students have attained a level of excellence in some of the most promising projects and products of which we at Fontys are extremely proud of. Both at our facility in Eindhoven and campus in Tilburg. We want to put this talent on show to each other and to the outside world. It is also the ultimate opportunity to get in touch with other enterprising students and the business community. After all, the business community eagerly awaits well-trained ICT professionals! With a healthy dollop of entertainment, professional pitches, an ICTalent market in which you can personally encounter and observe the prototypes, it promises to be a spectacular event once again.
Please note: because of the stricter measures surrounding the Covid-19 virus, the ICTalent Awards 2020 have been canceled. The focus is now on May 2021.
The preliminary rounds will take place in January and April 2021, both in Eindhoven and Tilburg. The best participants will be selected from these preliminaries for the semi-final which will take place at our Eindhoven Strijp TQ location. Ultimately, the best 8 candidates will make it to the finals in Theaters Tilburg!
During the ICTalent Awards final at Theaters Tilburg, the finalists must convince the public and the jury of the power of their idea and their working prototype. After all, at Fontys University of Applied Sciences ICT department, the students are trained to build prototypes.
The winner leaves with the ICTalent Award and receives a well-earned voucher worth 2000 euros per person which will contribute to the further development of the talent or product, possibly leading to starting a new business.
