Launch of European competition for best Insurtech student Project

In partnership with the European universities and Graduate Schools championship, the Morpheus Cup, NPG Wealth Management (NPG) has kicked off the competition for best Insurtech student project. The aim for European campuses is to produce ideas, projects and startups devoted to rethink the strategies of life and non-life insurance companies in terms of innovation and services. Participants are free to tackle any issue although key factors to be taken into consideration are increasing mobility and income throughout a person’s lifetime.

To take part, just register your team and project at Morpheuscup.com before 22 April. A summary description is required in 10 slides or less. NPG and Farvest, the event organiser – which brought together no less than 47 campuses from 17 European countries in 2015 – have decided to accept a wide range of submissions, irrespective of whether they are ideas, projects or startups.

The teams are invited to pitch their proposals to a multi-disciplinary panel, with the winners receiving the Best European Student Project Insurtech award, as well as funds, equipment and, if needed, support in setting up the project (technical and legal advice, mentoring).

NPG, the mentor and sponsor of the Insurtech initiative, thus plans to promote innovation in the field at European level, as well as to nurture talent and projects combining Insurance and Technology. The best project will not only receive the award, but will also go forward to the grand final with the winners of the other categories: Climate, Education, Fintech, Healthcare, Procurement, Wealth Management etc.

The international panel judging the best European project from all categories combined includes international personalities from a variety of fields, from venture capital to the media, academia and the charity sector (www.morpheuscup.com/jury-2/).

The event, as a whole, is being organised under the patronage of Tibor Navracsics, the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport. He enjoys the support of some twenty companies encouraging healthy competition between European campuses as well as innovation from students and the development of their relations with the world of work and entrepreneurship.
