UK ICT Pioneers
UK ICT Pioneers is a unique partnership between EPSRC and key stakeholders, that aims to recognise the most exceptional UK doctoral students in ICT-related topics, who are able to communicate and demonstrate the excellence and exploitation potential of their research.
Previous rounds of UK ICT Pioneers have taken the form of a national competition, open to all UK students in the final two years of their doctoral training, culminating in high profile showcases and awards ceremonies in London. The shortlisted candidates presented their research to panels of academic and industry experts to win cash prizes of £2000 donated by the industry sponsors.
The 2015 competition is being sponsored by Dstl, HP, EPSRC, BCS, BT, Facebook and Samsung.
Following the success of the previous rounds of the competition, EPSRC's ICT theme launched the UK ICT Pioneers 2015 competition on Thursday 05 March 2015. The closing date for expressions of interest is 12:00 noon, Thursday 16 April 2015.
