Interested in how new inventions are commercialised? Looking for some hands-on business skills and experience? Then read on!
“i-Teams is one of the most entertaining and inspiring projects I have ever worked on. It has helped to reshape and direct my future career towards entrepreneurship.”
Vaclav Potesil, Computational Biology, i-Teams student
By joining an i-Team, you will work for a term with students from across the University and a dedicated industry mentor. You will investigate the commercial potential of a real Cambridge invention, gaining hands-on skills and experience.
Next term’s projects:
1. Using magnetic fields to heat up localised parts of the body,
with Dr. Thanos Mitrelias & Dr. Marina Tselepi, Physics & Cavendish Nanotherapeutics
2. Creating the hydrogen economy using small-scale hydrogen generation,
with Enass Abo-Hamed & Dr. Roger Coulston, Chemistry
3. Inclusive user modelling – a new system for user interface designers,
with Dr. Pradipta Biswas, Engineering Design Centre
The programme lasts for a term and includes regular group sessions, team meetings and individual work. i-Teams present their final recommendations at the end of term to a business and academic audience, and at the annual CUTEC Technology Venture Conference. There is a first session on March 18th and then projects run from April 22nd until the final presentations on June 20th
