Do you have an area of research that you think has real market potential – but you’re not sure what the size of the market might be, or how best to approach that market?

Then maybe the ETECH projects can help. By performing market research, commercial evaluation and identifying routes to market, ETECH Projects can help establish the high level commercial opportunity and develop a commercial strategy.  You can

  • gain a better understanding of commercial potential of the invention or science-based idea including applications, market size, routes to market
  • receive a feasibility report of options take the idea forward such as finding industrial/commercial partners, or maybe putting together a team and applying for a patent

Projects must be for a market feasibility study of a novel technology. Proposals need to be submitted online at before 20 December for consideration in ETECH Projects 2014. Accepted project proposals will be put forward to students in the Lent term. Students then choose which projects to work on between the end of January and the middle of March.

ETECH Projects is managed and delivered by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning, Cambridge Judge Business School. More info at or email Dr Shima Barakat at
