On June 22nd2016 at Shanghai naked Hub, 19 international students of the UTSEUS ‘Language, Culture and Innovation for Entrepreneurship (LCIE)’ program presented their innovative and inspiring projects in front of an international audience and a jury of experts, including the representatives of Shanghai’s hackerspace (XinCheJian), Axa Asia Lab, ComplexCity and ChinPass.
The contest included four innovation projects by LCIE students. These included connecting objects, e-health, environmental innovation and virtual reality. Divided into four groups, the projects were designed during a five- month period under the leadership of mentors. Each project required students to follow 40 hours of classes and to participate in manufacturing workshops at Xinfab & Xinchejian.
After raising many questions, the jury decided to grant the first prize to project “HEARTCARE”, an innovative e-health tool that can monitor cardiac problems for people with reduced mobility. This project is now developed by the winning students so that it can be brought soon to the market.
