University of Cambridge researchers and inventors – Do you have an early stage technology or innovation that has developed as a result of your research? Would you like to understand more about its commercial potential? Then submit a proposal to ETECH Projects. By performing market research, commercial evaluation and identifying routes to market, ETECH Projects can help you establish the high level commercial potential and to develop a commercialisation strategy.

ETECH Projects aims to accelerate entrepreneurship and diffusion of innovations based on early stage and potentially disruptive technologies from the University of Cambridge. The projects are run by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning in conjunction with credit bearing courses on Entrepreneurship offered at a number of University departments. Students work in teams to prepare a commercial feasibility report and present the findings to the inventors. Supervision and support is provided which covers topics such as opportunity evaluation, developing business concepts and making presentations. The projects are underpinned by a series of faculty and practitioner-led lectures on specific themes, e.g. conducting due diligence, market and industry assessment.

If you have questions and would like to discuss this further, please email Dr Shima Barakat at

Please note that ETECH Projects, including all students' work, is subject to strict confidentiality procedures as stipulated by the University of Cambridge.
