Venture Prize 2014 Competition
Applications for the 2014 Venture Prize for Materials Science will be accepted between 1st January and 15th March 2014.
The prize is awarded in the form of an investment into an enterprise to support the early commercialisation of very promising research in Materials Science. Entries are judged on a competitive basis by a committee of commercial, financial and scientific experts. The committee is looking for innovative technologies in Materials Science with clear commercial potential. The intellectual property involved should be protected or protectable.
Whilst it is likely that the majority of applicants will be closely linked to the major UK university departments engaged in materials research, applications are also welcomed and positively encouraged from those materials scientists working in the industrial and commercial sectors.
Although there can be only one winner, all applicants benefit by entering a competition process which has been designed specifically to encourage and support participating materials scientists who have new and exciting ideas with commercial development potential.
If this is for you, please apply using the official application form which will be available on this site from 1st January 2014.
If you wish to publicise this prize in your organisation, publicity materials will be available on this site from 1st January 2014.
