Creating the Best Video Experience

European students will gather for third edition of the MorpheusCup

On April 28th, hundreds of European students will gather in Belval, Luxembourg, for the third edition of the MorpheusCup. This year, the Morpheus Prizes have been added to the European digital graduate schools and universities championship and allow students to compete remotely. Luxembourgish and European companies, through the organization of unique and one-of-a-kind challenges will push to students to limits to boost their creativity and skills.

SES, the leading communications satellite operator based in Betzdorf, will challenge the students through the creation of a "Media Innovation" project. Young talents will, therefore, have to imagine an innovative solution with the aim of delivering the best video experience to consumers for content anytime/anywhere, using satellite and terrestrial distribution.

An endowment of 25,000 euros in cash, connections with employers and investors as well as equipment are up for grabs. The Morpheus Prize is extremely easy to take part in: simply register individually or in teams before March 31st and submit the draft electronically on the website before April 12th, 2017.

From its very first edition in 2015, the MorpheusCup has received the support of the European Commission, for its efforts to bridge the gap between the current and future needs and demands of the job market in Europe. This year is no exception as Commissioners Marianne Thyssen, from the Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility department, and Carlos Moedas from the Research, Science and Innovation department confirmed the EC's support for the first time.

The Morpheus Cup and the Morpheus Prize are organized by Farvest, a marketing agency founded in June 2000 and already with major tech and digital media summits behind it (ICT Spring, Space Forum) as well as events in 10 sectors of activity.
