Summer Innovation Challenge 2020 


One great opportunity we offer to all our Summer Power trainees in Finland, is the possibility to attend our Summer Innovation Challenge, which will now be organised for the second time. 

We believe that our summer trainees are natural innovators with fresh ideas. This is why we created the Summer Innovation Challenge, to establish a platform where our trainees can make their ideas visible. At the same time the challenge, which continues through-out the whole summer, enables our trainees to network, create together and learn more about our business. 

But what is the Summer Innovation Challenge?

Summer Innovation Challenge is a contest that consists of different business cases, representing real challenges that Wärtsilä wants to solve. During the competition we offer our  trainees the change to work as a team to find solutions or suggest improvements to these real-life cases. All cases have business case owners, professionals from Wärtsilä, who support the teams during the summer. We will also arrange lessons on pitching and the opportunity to practice the final presentation.

All ideas will be published internally, so that all Wärtsilians will have the possibility to get to know the solutions and comment on the end results. At the end of the summer, each team will also pitch their ides in the closing event where the best ideas will be rewarded.
