This year, Fresh Ideas is running as an ongoing monthly competition allowing SIE to award cash prizes to three entrants every month! We are delighted to announce the winners of the final monthly phase. Our January 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners are:
- 1st Prize (£500): Andrew Robertson (University of Glasgow)
- 2nd Prize (£250): Marek Bialy (University of Glasgow)
- 3rd Prize (£100): Juan Pablo Echenique (University of Edinburgh, School of Engineering)
We had a huge number of entries in this final monthly phase and in addition to the three main winners, approx 30 entries were rated as Highly Commended and will also move forward in the competition.
The next stage of the competition will see the winners and Highly Commended entrants from each monthly phase come together in February for Exploration Day where they will work on their ideas.
They’ll then go forward to pitch to judges in March for the opportunity to win the top prize!
