This year’s Summer of Student Innovation competition is now open. The competition offers the chance for students to create technology solutions that could change our education landscape, and provides £5000 grant funding to them to transform their ideas into prototypes.
Students can come from a single discipline or from across disciplines. Last year, a University of Greenwich team of students were successful in getting their idea funded, and used the grant to fund summer work placements at the university. Following the launch at GoogleCampus, Greenwich was chosen as the site for the Summer of Student Innovation Summer School, where teams came together over 2 day for R & D work.
The Summer of Student Innovation project recognises the importance of giving students a voice in the way they are taught, learn and live whilst studying. It aims to develop students’ creative design, research, entrepreneurial and project management skills.
