Smartphones, social media, the latest app: mobile solutions are becoming more and more central to our lives and work. And each innovation seems to come faster than the last, capturing our imagination and revolutionising the way we communicate.

Have you also thought up a great IT idea that could shape the future? A digital business solution perhaps, a concept to make the mobile life of consumers or business people even more mobile? If you have, then we’d like to invite you to take part in an international innovation contest: CODE_n12.

CODE_n12 is about anything and everything new. The contest’s theme is “Shaping Mobile Life”, and its aim is to uncover the 50 best business ideas for digital mobile solutions. The winners will be showcased at the world’s leading technology show, CeBIT, which takes place in Hanover from 6 to 10 March 2012.

Whether your idea is an imaginative IT-based business concept, a new type of product or an innovative application, the CODE_n12 contest is a unique opportunity for all kinds of business start-ups, recently founded companies and high-flying IT experts to display their solution before an international audience – and become part of a global innovation network. Submissions can be innovative hardware or software, services or technology.

The CODE_n12 initiative was launched by GFT Technologies and is supported by renowned Strategic Partners: Ernst & Young, Fujitsu Technologies Solutions, Deutsche Messe, BITKOM and ZKM. A jury of leading IT experts, scientists and business specialists will judge all entries before selecting the 50 most promising concepts. To provide a suitable setting for the ideas at CeBIT 2012, internationally renowned artist Tobias Rehberger and the architect Jürgen Mayer H. have designed a spectacular innovation showroom, which will also be the meeting point for the avant-garde of IT.CeBIT_2012_Hanover_1
