Stage is set for Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards 2019




The waiting is almost over… tonight (Wednesday) the winners of the Cambridge Independent Science and Technology Awards 2019 will be unveiled to a packed house at the Bradfield Centre.

The ground floor of the deep tech hub on Cambridge Science Park will be transformed for the third annual awards, which received a record number of entries this year.

With a stellar cast of sponsors, and 15 categories, the awards have established themselves as a key event in the Cambridge calendar.

Celebrating everything from cleantech to AI, and from STEM initiatives to the most exciting life science companies in the region, the awards also feature two categories for individuals - Researcher of the Year and CEO of the Year.

Entrepreneur Charles Cotton will be guest speaker at the awards.

A networking reception hosted by HSBC will be followed by the presentation of the awards at the invitation-only event.

Names of the winners will be posted later tonight on this website, and a special souvenir winners’ section will be published in next week’s Cambridge Independent.
