2012 Innovation Competition

09 January 2012

As part of Springfords’ continuing commitment to supporting young innovation companies, we are pleased to be co-sponsoring the Edinburgh BioQuarter 2012 Innovation Competition for the second year running.

The objective of the competition is to encourage the discovery of new product and service ideas which will benefit  the health of humans and animals.  The competition is open to researchers and academics from University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian and the closing entry date is 31 March 2012. 

Dr Mike Capaldi, Commercialisation Director at Edinburgh BioQuarter said "Support from commerical firms like Springfords is vital to the success of our mission here at BioQuarter.  As well as sponsoring the competition, Springfords have brought their expertise and advice to bear in shaping this second year of our innovation competition, which is aiming to uncover more great ideas from the world-class medical research being undertaken here in Edinburgh." 

Five lucky companies will be chosen from the entrants to go through to the final round of the competition in April where they will have to compete in  “Dragon’s Den” style to convince the panel of expert  judges why their product or service is worthy of winning the first prize – it’s worth winning as it totals £10,000!
