Celebrating ingenuity

Life-changing experiences

For participants, the competition expands horizons and initiates changes in attitude and behaviour in a way many might never have experienced before.

Past participant Dr Robert Grundy, now a mentor, an advisor to the Northern Ireland Government on biotechnology, and Founder and Director of Anglezarke Life Sciences Ltd, said:

It kind of set a fuse off in my mind when I was in the first year of my PhD and realised I was interested in pursuing some kind of scientific career. The business aspect of science really appealed to me, the dynamism in that application of science.
