By joining an i-Team, you will work for a term with students and researchers 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.
Past i-Teams projects include Raspberry Pi, AQDOT, Cambridge CMOS Sensors, Sphere Fluidics, Cambridge Nanosystems, Immaterial Labs and many others.
The programme lasts for a term and includes regular group sessions, team meetings and individual work. i-Teams present their final recommendations to a business and academic audience at the end of the term. Projects run at 7-10pm on Monday evenings from January 16th with a final presentation session on Thursday March 16th.

"I was one of the first students who joined i-Teams. The experience really shaped my career, as I changed professional course and from an engineering student doing his PhD, became a business consultant and then project manager, and I have now founded my own company” George Lentaris (i-Teams 2007) Founder of EnerVibe.
