Training the next generation
Horizons Programme – My World: Be Sustainable
Imperial Horizons is the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication’s flagship programme for undergraduates. Horizons offers students a wide range of modules they can take alongside their degree to stimulate their personal, professional and intellectual growth. The Horizons Module ‘My World: Be Sustainable’ offers students the opportunity to work together to explore their own sustainability footprint and design and test sustainability innovations to limit their impact on the environment.
The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership
This unique and prestigious doctoral training opportunity, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), and based at the Grantham Institute, integrates six host partners and private and public sector partners to train and inspire a new generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
Several Imperial students are completing internships with us this summer to look at ways we can make our College operations and campuses more sustainable, through investigating biodiversity and exploring opportunities and measures for reducing emissions.
The competition is open to all undergraduate students within the Faculty of Natural Sciences (Chemistry, Life Sciences, Mathematics and Physics) and also to team members from other Faculties. The competition runs in 3 stages, with students working in teams to develop low-cost technology that would have an impact on Society. The top teams will be given funding, space and a bursary to work on their project for 8 weeks over the summer. They will then present their findings to an expert panel of VIP Judges and will compete for prizes of up to £7000.
