Join Technology i-Teams for Easter Term – apply by 5 March

last modified Feb 13, 2017 11:36 AM
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 24 April with a final presentation session on Thursday 22 June.

Easter Term projects:

  1. Identifying industrial interest in second-generation metal additive manufacturing processes, with Dr. Michael De Volder & Dr. Davor Copic, IfM
  2. Helping consumers and companies make more environmentally-sustainable and healthier choices, with Rosemary Ostfeld, Judge Business School
  3. Investigating the areas of greatest need by developing a new approach to drug discovery, with Dr. Hannah Sore, Chemistry & PHARMeNABLE

"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 5 March, 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.
