“Stay Connected!” – UK Alumni Engagement Solutions Competition 2018 invites Chinese UK alumni to use their creativity and expertise to develop proposals to encourage greater engagement and connectivity among alumni members in China and globally.
The competition was launched during UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s visit to China. It is now open for submissions of innovative proposals until 16 March 2018. The winning solution and the winner of this competition will be announced at the end of April 2018.
The winning individual or team of alumni will be offered an exciting opportunity to be part of a project team, consisting of leading experts in digital solutions from Deloitte China and senior marketing managers from the British Council, to develop the winning solution in real life and create the proposed platform from April to July 2018. The project team will be provided with necessary technical and logistic support, with cost covered by the British Council.
A grant of GBP5,000 will also be awarded to the winning individual or team to cover their travel or logistic cost for working as part of the project team to develop the proposed platform.
It is expected that the new digital platform will be launched on 1 September 2018.
The intellectual property of the project would be owned by the British Council.
