What is The Inform Prize?

Launched in 2014 and funded by Intelligent Plant to encourage students to think about how they might communicate their ideas and research findings to local employers, and promote interaction between industry and academia.

Students are tasked with creating a digital solution to a real life problem. A panel of judges are presented with videos by the students which demonstrate their teams product in action.

Teams also take part in a question and answer session before the judges go on to decide who the winners are.

The University of Aberdeen has been involved in The Inform Prize since its inception. Our students that compete in The Inform Prize are in their third year, which presents the perfect opportunity to put all they have learned up to that point into practice. Their interactions before, during, and after the event offer a unique opportunity to have direct contact with industry and gives them first-hand experience on designing, marketing, and presenting their product.
