last modified Nov 21, 2016 03:47 PM
Interested in how new inventions are commercialised? Looking for some hands-on business skills and experience?

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.

Lent Term projects:

  1. Investigating the best applications for a freestanding film or easily applied coating of nano materials, with Dawid Janas, Cnergytec   
  2. Understanding the market need for the production of hydrogen from biomass, with Dr. Erwin Reisner & David Wakerley, Chemistry    
  3. Exploration of early markets for novel colloid formulations, with Professor Oren Scherman, Silvia Vignolini, Yang Lan & Erika Eiser, Chemistry

"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.

To find out more about i-Teams and this term’s projects visit the iTeams website.

Apply via the iTeams website no later than SUNDAY DECEMBER 4th, including a CV and a covering letter explaining which projects you want to do and why.

Applications are welcomed from post-graduates, postdocs and 4th year undergraduates, as well as from all members of CUTEC, CUE and the Centre for Global Equality.
