Marca will host the 5th Think Tank Award, the GDO Week competition for retail projects by university undergraduates

The Think Tank Award, the competition organised by GDO Week in collaboration with the Bocconi University to honour outstanding retail projects developed by undergraduates at leading European universities, will be back at Marca 2017.

Now in its 5th edition, last year’s award selected 15 projects by students at the Economics Faculty of the Bocconi University in Milan, the EM University-Lyon Business School in Lyon, and the Esade Business School in Barcelona.

The award ceremony will be held at 12:30 pm on 19 January 2017 during Marca. All projects are visible online on the website and can be voted for in a web survey which will close on 30 December. They fall into 5 categories (green & CSR, technology, food, transversality and multi-channel retailing) aimed at promoting culture and innovation in the world of retail.

The jury, chaired by the editor of GDO Week, Cristina Lazzati, consists of leading retailers, architects, sociologists, journalists, researchers, consultants and lecturers in the world of retail. The Think Tank Award 2016 is sponsored by Consorzio Coralis.
