For early career researchers and academics -- £40,000 prize for the winner!
As the UK's national academy for engineering, the Royal Academy of Engineering brings together the most successful and talented practitioners from across the engineering sectors for a shared purpose: to advance and promote excellence in engineering.
The ERA Foundation Entrepreneurs Award has been established to identify entrepreneurial researchers, working in UK universities in the field of electrotechnology, who are at an early stage in their career. The award will be presented to an individual or team demonstrating considerable entrepreneurial promise and the potential to benefit the UK's future prosperity.
The winner will receive a personal prize of £10,000 together with a further £30,000 to invest in the development of the winning idea. In addition to the first prize, two additional cash prizes of £2,000 will be presented to runners-up.
