Mobilk - Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) recently hosted future Information and Communications Technology (ICT) innovators at the company’s head office in Kista - Stockholm, Sweden. 17 students from across Oman, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia spent an extensive week of engaging activities and firsthand learning experiences.

As well as receiving extensive training, coaching, and the opportunity to meet with innovation experts, the participants also took part in a range of interactive workshops and presentations on the topics of 5G, IoT, Ericsson Mobility Report, Sustainability, Brand, Innovation, and Future Factories to name but a few.

Other highlights included the exclusive opportunity to spend time in the Ericsson Studio, an insightful glimpse into the planning behind Sweden’s Dubai Expo 2020 pavilion, and group outings to technology companies such as Hewlett Packard Enterprises and Intel.
