Would you like to find out if your early-stage research results or new technology has commercial potential?
We work closely with departments and colleagues across the University and expect to offer more than 70 places to PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, early career academics and other research-based or research-related staff at the University. As a project-based learning programme, its focus is on developing skills in entrepreneurship around early-stage innovations and development opportunities. Since many of our students are funded with UK research council funding, we aim to align with the strategic research and innovation themes of UK Research and Innovation.
We’re calling for inventors of early-stage novel technologies from across the University of Cambridge, other institutions, local start-ups, companies and large industry to submit their innovative and stimulating projects. Ideas are explored as a teaching aide for our student teams to work on. Each team will produce a commercial feasibility report, a useful video infomercial and a pitch.
At the end of the programme, the reports and videos are shared with the inventors. We aim for these to provide useful business insight on the future of your proposed device or technology. Inventors supplying projects gain a better understanding of the commercial potential of their invention - including applications, market size and the routes to market.
Please submit a project by completing the form on the website. The proposal deadline is 15 January 2021.
