Share your vision. Improve your prospects.

Exciting. Creative. Challenging. Fascinating. Unique.

This is how participating students describe the Henkel Innovation Challenge. It is a perfect chance to develop your vision of life and to take a Henkel product or technology into 2050 – not to mention the valuable mentorship, career opportunities and fantastic prizes.

To participate, form a team of 2 students and imagine being the business managers of Adhesives Technologies, Beauty Care or Laundry & Home Care. 

Take your opportunity to:

  • Get coached by your personal Henkel mentor.
  • Train your skills, shape your career.
  • Compete with the best students from all over the globe.
  • Create your network and have fun.
  • Get first hand insights of one of the world’s leading companies.
  • Have the chance to meet the Henkel CEO personally.
  • Win one of the great prizes, such as a photo camera, an i-pad or a ticket voucher worth € 10.000.

The best teams are invited to the national finals to present their concept – after having received valuable and personalized support from Henkel managers, who mentor each selected team during the 3 weeks preparation phase. The winning teams of the national finals get the chance to participate in the international final at the global headquarters in Germany – with additional mentorship and support from Henkel managers.
