Key details for 2014

The 2014 event is for the first time offering 4 training heats. Between these events we can accommodate up to 30 teams, which is an increase of 7 teams on last year. We are again offering a range of fees that reward those who book places early and for Institutions that book over 20 places. We have held our fees at 2013 levels to help University fundholders maximise the number of participants they are able to send.

Early Bird Discounts booked by 31st January  2014               £600.00 per person

Teams participate with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 members. Researchers do not need to be in a team of the correct size in order to book a place. Where researchers want to register as individuals, pairs or groups of three, we will allocate them into full teams as appropriate before they start the programme.

Event Summary

Engineering YES has been proven to provide a fast paced, high pressure, rich learning environment, where researchers can find a safe space to learn all about the commercialisation of research from industry experts using the process of researching and developing their own business plan. Participant engagement is guaranteed as they work in teams and compete to win the overall £2000 first prize.

2013 was a great success and our evaluation report with the student feedback is attached to this message.
