last modified Apr 12, 2016 10:15 AM

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!

Taking real Cambridge innovations, the i-Teams will look into the realities of taking these to the developing world in a sustainable way that will improve people's lives. Projects include testing for anaemia, investigating the impact of blood transfusions, and safer storage of biogas.

Development i-Teams is open to all students (undergraduates and post-graduates), post-docs and staff, as well as all members of the Centre for Global Equality http://centreforglobalequality.org - 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 3rd through to June 7th, and there will be approximately 4 hours of individual work needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from experts in international development.  

For more details and to apply for a place on a team, apply no later than MONDAY APRIL 25th by clicking here.
