last modified Apr 13, 2017 12:44 PM
Apply by 2 May to join a Development i-Team to investigate ways of alleviating global poverty using Cambridge ideas.

Have you ever wondered how new ideas can help people in the developing world? Are you interested in what Cambridge can do to help? If so, then the Development i-Teams programme is for you.

This term’s projects are:

  • Exploring the potential of self-healing circuits to address e-waste in the developing world
  • Investigating the adoption of a new way of dyeing fabric in India
  • Identifying the market challenges of using solar photocatalysis to purify water

Development i-Teams is open to all students, and research staff, as well as all members of the Centre for Global Equality - anyone with an interest in how technology can make the world a better place for the world's poorest.

The course runs on Tuesday evenings from May 9th to June 13th, with approximately 4 hours of individual work needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from experts in international development.
