We are glad to share the success of one of our chapter president winning the Imagine Cup 2017 from Microsoft.

Barbora Suchanova from Prague, Czech Republic became a UPE member in early 2017, later also elected to be chapter president, and at that point, it was not even near to the peak of her success. On July, 27, 2017, Barbora and her team [1] attend the finals of Imagine Cup 2017 in Seattle, with their project smart glucose meter for children with diabetes [2]. With a strong competition of hundreds of teams world wide with challenging giants such as MIT, Stanford, Tokyo or Oxford Universities they triumphed and won the cup for the first time in Czech history.

We are looking forward to seeing the impact of their project in practice over the next few years.

Congratulations to Barbora and her team!
