Event description

Description

Announced back in July, The Trinity Bradfield Prize provides students and young researchers at the University of Cambridge with funding, space, and mentoring to pursue early-stage ideas and transfer their research from the lab or lecture hall to real-world applications. Entries close 22nd September, apply here.

Trinity College and Central Working, who operates the Bradfield Centre at Cambridge Science Park, devised the biannual competition to enable entrepreneurial students to develop their innovations in a conducive setting. The prize winners will be based at the Bradfield Centre, receive £10,000, have access to networking opportunities and entrepreneurial events at the Bradfield Centre and receive mentoring from scientists-entrepreneurs, leading academics and Trinity alumni.

The 2019 winners will be announced on the night by Sir Gregory Winter who is best known for developing new classes of antibody-based drugs to treat cancer and auto-immune diseases, which have revolutionised the pharmaceutical industry. He said:

‘My own journey from academic research to the development of new pharmaceutical drugs was greatly accelerated by exposure to an entrepreneurial culture. I, therefore, welcome the opportunity offered by the prize for an entrepreneurial-minded student at Cambridge to develop their ideas in the fertile context of the Bradfield Centre, rubbing shoulders with other tech entrepreneurs and mentors from Trinity alumni network.’

The judging panel is:

  • Sir Greg Winter

  • Robert Swann
