WE Innovate @ Imperial Programme
The 2015 prize finalists. Entries included a waterproof concrete, FungiAlert - a device that allows farmers to detect the presence of fungal spores before they infect crops, and a mini power plant that transforms agricultural waste into clean energy for off-grid households in Rural India.
The core programme consists of six workshops that enhance women students' entrepreneurial projects, many of whom go on to compete for the final prize. The programme has been designed to encourage female students, through a series of exclusive development and mentoring opportunities.
The programme and the prize are open to all women studying at Imperial College London. The programme will provide tailored support focussed on developing skills and potential whilst guiding students to develop their innovative project idea.
