Inform Prize

Inform Prize is back this year - In person

Now into its 9th year, the Inform Prize, funded by Intelligent Plant, was launched in 2014 to encourage Computing Science students at the University of Aberdeen to think about how they might communicate their ideas and research findings to local employers and promote interaction between industry and academia.

There are three categories - Best Presentation (Inform), Best Implementation (Enhance) and Best Idea (Grow)

Category winners will be presented with a trophy and £800.

For their third year project, students are initially tasked with creating a digital solution to a real life problem. During the final stages of their projects, students are asked to present their idea to a panel of judges, give a demonstration of the product in action, and take part in a question and answer session, before the judges go on to decide who the winners are.

Thanks to Proserv and STC insiso for sponsoring our event this year.

Join us on Wednesday 28th September 2022, 1.00-4.00pm at the OGV Podium

Our students have fruitful contacts with Intelligent Plant, which enthuse and inform students about current projects and cutting edge technologies. This exposure proves invaluable to educate students on research and development in the industry, and bridge the gap between theory and practice. The Inform Prize integrates perfectly within the third year syllabus, and each year our students surpass all expectations with the thought, planning and enthusiasm that they apply to their projects and their presentation.
