2022 Crick Innovation Challenge
The Francis Crick Institute, London
Wednesday 27 Apr 2022
Applications are now open for the 2022 Crick Innovation Challenge!
Crick Science Entrepreneur Network and Crick Translation team are co-organising the 2022 Crick Innovation Challenge, a hackathon-style event that will take place on Friday 22 - Friday 29 July 2022. The Innovation Challenge is aimed at early-career scientists (MSc, PhD, Postdoctoral researchers or other scientific staff) based in the UK who are curious about entrepreneurship. You don’t need to be set on entrepreneurship, and you don’t need to have an idea, team or product to apply – just your curiosity and openness to new ways of thinking. Participants will form teams and come up with innovative solutions in one of four challenge areas. There will be an opportunity for participants to present their business proposals to a panel of industry experts and investors.
The four challenge areas:
Biotech outside medicine
