The Morpheus Cup, which was introduced in the context of ICT Spring, a global tech conference, is under the patronage of Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility, and Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation. Its goal is to bring young European talent in contact with the corporate world.

A total of 200 students from 16 countries competed in several categories. They were charged with developing innovative solutions for various entrepreneurial challenges, for example, coming up with a concept for the careers website of a major life insurance company. Other competitions were concerned with cybersecurity, design, business, gamification, and engineering.



Located in the heart of the German and European economy, Mannheim Business School (MBS), the umbrella organization for management education at the University of Mannheim, is considered to be one of the leading institutions of its kind in Germany and is continuously ranked as Germany’s #1.
