Development i-Teams- help use Cambridge ideas in the developing world


Deadline for applications: Monday 12 October


Have you ever wondered how new ideas can help people in the developing world? Are you interested in what Cambridge can do to help? If so, then our Development i-Teams programme is for you! This year Development iTeams includes two medical themed projects. This term’s projects include:


·         Exploring the need for polymeric heart valves in the developing world

·         Investigating the best markets for 3D-printed medical braces


The course will run online at 7pm UK time on Tuesday evenings from October 20th to November 24th, with approximately 4 hours of individual work needed each week, mostly involving gathering real-world feedback from experts in international development. For more details and to apply for a place on a team, see www.iteamsonline.org. Applications are welcomed from all students (undergraduates and post-graduates), post-docs and staff, as well as all members of the Centre for Global Equality - anyone with an interest in how technology can make the world a better place for the world's poorest.
