Stand out from the crowd

Taking part in i-Teams can help you boost your skills and stand out to prospective employers. It is a chance to work collaboratively with industry professionals and add value to a real invention as part of a fun, hands-on team.

What will I learn?

You will gain the hands-on experience and satisfaction of "learning by doing", working on a real project where your ideas and conclusions will influence future directions and outcomes.

You will gain skills including:

  • Team work & team management
  • Consultancy
  • Brainstorming
  • Identifying the key commercial benefits of a technology or product innovation
  • Identifying relevant competitors and potential collaborators
  • Identifying and contacting relevant industry experts
  • Using and developing your own network of contacts
  • Cold calling and extracting useful information from commercial contacts
  • Analysing incomplete data from a variety of sources to draw a justifiable conclusion
  • Presentation skills for a non-expert audience

In addition, everyone that completes the programme will receive a certificate, and Masters and PhD students will receive PPD points.

The programme includes workshops and a presentation by an entrepreneur, and i-Teams members also benefit from the opportunity to participate in Norwich – Cambridge linked activities.

At the end of the programme, you will present your conclusions to a mixed university and industry audience.
