The Armourers and Brasiers’ Company is, through the Gauntlet Trust, one of the leading supporters of materials science education and research at schools and universities in the UK. They provide direct financial support for the commercialisation of promising research via the provision of an annual Armourers and Brasiers’ Materials Science Venture Prize.
The scheme is focused on an annual prize of £25,000 in the form of an investment into the enterprise and is judged on a competitive basis by a committee of commercial, financial and scientific experts. This prize is intended to enable the winner to fund a significant commercial advancement of the project to a stage where a business may be created to exploit this technology.
The deadline for applications is 31st March 2013, with further details at http://www.armourershall.co.uk/index.php. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
