Evonik has launched a new crowd-sourcing competition, encouraging students to produce innovative solutions to societal problems.
The company is challenging students to come up with new ideas around tamper-resistant and abuse-deterrent formulations in pharmaceutical applications using Evonik’s patented EUDRAGIT polymers.
“This challenge is open to college students from around the world and provides them the opportunity to work on important public health issues while also contributing in their field of study,” said Sanjay Gupta, Vice President and Regional Head of Corporate Innovation at Evonik. “Engaging students through innovative programs such as this, gives them a better snapshot of what life is like inside Evonik.”
The competition will be hosted by San Francisco-based MindSumo and the current challenge is open until June 10. Winners will receive cash prizes as well as opportunities for internships or employment.
