As long as government COVID-related guidance allows, the top teams selected in Stage 2 will have access to labs or other appropriate spaces and a budget (up to £1,500) to develop their project to a proof-of-concept stage over 8 weeks. There will also be bursaries available for each student team member to cover living costs over the summer.

On completion of their research, teams will submit a detailed summary of their findings and give a presentation of their project to our panel of VIP Judges at an event open to the public.
