University students believe their ideas have the potential to change people’s lives

The James Dyson Award is the international design award that celebrates, encourages, and inspires the next generation of design engineers.

Each year, a UK winner is recognised and awarded £5,000 and the opportunity to be entered into the international stages to compete against other national winners from around the world.

From today (Wednesday 1st March) until Wednesday 19th July students can enter this year’s award – hoping to receive £5,000 and the international winner £30,000, with prizes for runners up, to help develop and commercialise their winning ideas.

New research of university students has uncovered that over two-thirds (64%) believe that they have a unique idea or concept that could change people’s lives. Over half (52%) think they have an invention or idea that could aid the environment and almost 6 in 10 (57%) have a concept that’s rooted in the healthcare sector.
