Nobel Prize winner Sir Gregory Winter has praised the emerging tech talent within UK universities after Trinity College Cambridge and Central Working awarded £25,000 and business growth support to an entrepreneurial team of students.
Three Cambridge university students were awarded support after winning the inaugural Trinity Bradfield prize.
The programme was created this year to nurture teams of entrepreneurial students at the university of Cambridge who have developed ideas to address global challenges.
The three winning teams included Simon Engelke, who has developed a method for battery performance and charging speed and Saikat Subhra Ghosh who created a pole changing machine to provide gear shifting for electric cars.
Nidhin Laji produced a 3D modelling programme for heart surgery in newborn children.
The total funding for all three was £25,000 with two being awarded £10,000 each and Nidhin Lagi £5,000.
