last modified May 12, 2020 04:13 PM

For the seventh year running, the CAPE Acorn Fund seeks to support a range of small projects, with emphasis on promoting research proposed by young student researchers. Undergraduate students who are considering putting forward an industrial based type-(b) project topic for their 4th Year Project are invited to submit a brief proposal, no more than 2 pages of A4, to:

The CAPE Coordinator, CAPE Office, 9 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 0FA
Email: cape-office@eng.cam.ac.uk

The close date for submission is Friday, 15 May 2020.

Each proposal will be evaluated by the CAPE office for funding in association with one or more of the CAPE Partner companies. Through the CAPE Office, students who are interested could approach the CAPE Partners of their choice with their project ideas, and then formulate their project before submitting their proposals. The CAPE Office will be able to facilitate appropriate contact with the CAPE Partner companies.

The successful candidates will receive a CAPE 4th Year Project Award, which includes project funding through CAPE at the standard 4th Year Project level (£250) and a £250 cash prize, total award of £500. They will then be invited to present their project results to the CAPE Steering Committee during the CAPE 2-Day Event in June 2021.
