Connected Living


The 2015 theme for Atos IT Challenge was Connected Living. The students were asked to create the best concepts for connected living – a world where our homes, work, and cities are all seamlessly connected through multiple smart devices that integrate video, voice, and data services, to provide access and ubiquitous connectivity anytime and anywhere.


This year more than 300 students from Universities and “Grandes Ecoles” all around the world have participated in the IT Challenge, from which 15 teams have been shortlisted by the judging panel. The panel includes members of the Atos Scientific Community – a global network of around 100 of the best Business Technologists within Atos; experts from EEBus and representatives from the European Commission
