Have you ever been doing a task and thought: “There’s got to be a better way to do this?” Now you have the chance to develop a new product – and win £5,000 in the process

Strathclyde Inspire’s Innovation Challenge is back – with bigger and better prizes – so to be in with a chance of winning, all we’re asking you to do is come up with a great product that either solves, or improves a real-life problem.

To enter the Innovation Challenge, applicants need to develop an early-stage prototype of their product and answer a few questions about it. We need all applicants to submit a short video (3 minutes maximum) showing the prototype and showcasing it in action. Please make sure you have included the link to your video before you submit your application.

The Challenge is open to current students at the University of Strathclyde (UG, PGT and PGR – graduating in summer 2023 and beyond).

In addition to the top prize of £5,000, second place will receive £3,000 and third place £2,000.

Interested? The deadline for entries is Friday 2nd June at 5pm.
