All it takes is one bright idea… to make a big difference!

We’ve had some fantastic entries in so far for the Young Innovators Challenge 2014 and there’s still time to enter before online entry closes on March 26th. We’re looking for innovative ideas to address problems or opportunities in one of three areas: healthcare & wellbeing, green & sustainable energy resources, and smarter communities & infrastructure.

After entries close, up to 150 shortlisted entrants will win £100 and be invited to a special Young Innovators Challenge start-up weekend to work on their idea. After that they’ll create a video pitch for the final judging!

The best 25 will receive up to £2500 to help them work on their idea over the summer.
