The Fujitsu Graduate Innovation Challenge


The Fujitsu Graduate Innovation Challenge is a UK-wide competition for all university students. Launching on 12th October 2015, your brief is to:

“Create an innovative solution that helps protect children online”

You have until 30th November 2015 to submit a business proposal identifying your idea or solution, using the ‘Apply Now’ button below.

Teamwork is an important value to Fujitsu in the UK and Ireland, and we encourage participants to work in up to teams of 5 (max) students on their business proposal.

Why enter?

The winning team of students will gain automatic entry onto the Fujitsu Graduate Scheme in 2016*. A solution that Fujitsu could implement by that winning team would also mean that they would work as Graduates on their specific solution for Fujitsu – helping to protect children online.

Runners-up will get to experience insight into Fujitsu via a specially organised meeting with one of our UK&I Directors – helping to build your career and professional network.

All entrants will benefit from collaboration with Fujitsu and associated organisations, with industry mentors assigned to finalist teams in December 2015.


Fujitsu – Our Graduate Recruitment Team, Cyber Security Experts and Senior Directors will all be involved in this exciting challenge.

Action for Children – Fujitsu’s Charity Partner in the UK. They believe every child should be safe and will be assisting in the creation of your ideas.

Entry by an individual rather than a team is accepted, however, only one entry per individual will be accepted.
