ETECH Projects

ETECH Projects accelerates entrepreneurship and diffusion of innovations based on early stage and potentially disruptive technologies from the University of Cambridge. The projects are run within credit-bearing programmes offered at a number of University departments.

In recent years, ETECH Projects have been delivered across the University's Natural Sciences, Technology and Biological Sciences departments to approximately 500 undergraduate and postgraduate students, working with 30+ inventors, and resulted in the evaluation of over 50 novel technologies through almost 100 projects. Building on this solid foundation, ETECH Projects aims to reach out to more departments within the University of Cambridge, helping to accelerate entrepreneurship and innovation based on novel and potentially disruptive technologies.

Who is it for?

Students on certain programmes at the University of Cambridge's Schools of Technology and Biological Sciences, including Cambridge Judge Business School's MBA and Executive MBA programmes.
