YES19

 

YES is an innovative global competition developed to raise awareness among postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers of how ideas from science and engineering can be commercialised.

Teams, united by a dedication to their subject, curiosity, enthusiasm and a desire to learn, attempt to deploy novel science and engineering to address societal challenges such as the ageing population, sustainable food production, global warming and driverless cars. In this way, they develop a business plan for a start-up company based on a hypothetical but plausible idea during an intense three-day residential workshop.
