University of Liechtenstein wins Swiss final at innovation competition

Students of the master programme Information Systems at the University of Liechtenstein have won the Swiss final of the Accenture Campus Innovation Challenge, a cross-university and transnational case study competition, on July 15th in Zurich.

The team “Promena” has convinced the jury with their solution to the topic “Industrial-Internet-of-Things” and prevailed against the best groups of Swiss universities. Thereby, the team members Lora Delieva, Johannes Heinzelmann, Christian Holder, Michael Kamm, Ruanda Qamili and Sina Reubelt got the unique opportunity to take part in the final in July in Frankfurt and compete against the best groups from Germany and Austria.

The Institute of Information Systems promotes within its master's programme Information Systems and with the help of practice-oriented seminars specifically the ability to develop innovative, it-based solutions to increase the efficiency of companies and create new business areas. Within the seminar “Innovation Lab” students therefore annually take part – already successfully many times – in the Accenture Campus Innovation Challenge of this well-known consulting company. Dr. Theresa Schmiedel, Assistant Professor at the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management, leads the seminar and was excited about the performance of the students: “They have shown once again, that success is determined by combining innovation spirit, thirst for knowledge, fiddling and extraordinary commitment.”
