"i-Teams was a highlight of my time at Cambridge!  My teammates were   
amazing, and I learned so much about business and entrepreneurship.  I felt like 
I was part of an exciting new project and contributing to the development of an 
important technology!"

- Lindsay Moore, Psychology and Neuroscience in Education, i-Teams student

In the ground-breaking i-Teams programme, post-graduates from across the University work together to discover the commercial potential of a real Cambridge invention. Each team collaborates with researchers and industry mentors to assess the route to market for the emerging technology. At the end of the term, the teams present their findings to a business and academic audience and have the opportunity to present at the annual CUTEC Technology Venture Conference.

The programme lasts for a term and includes regular group sessions, team meetings and individual work.

Next term’s projects:

  • Finding real-world applications for a synthetic reversible molecular lego system Dr. Bazbek Davletov, Dr. Enrico Ferrari & Dr. Chunjing Gu, MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology
  • Enhancing Reality – finding commercial applications for Spectral Edge, a new image fusion technology Professor Graham Finlayson, Dr. David Connah, School of Computing Sciences, UEA
  • MicroEnCAPs – investigating the market demand for self-assembling “smart” materials Dr. Roger Coulston (an i-Teams alumnus) & Jing Zhang (an i-Teams alumnus), Chemistry
