2015 winners

Salt of the Earth

They are a team of three Cambridge undergraduates studying at Pembroke College whose solution really grabbed the judges’ attention because of its imaginative use of natural materials and its sheer simplicity. They enjoyed a cash prize and received their trophies at the Innovation Awards where they got to share a table with the judges before crashing out in a classy London hotel.

But their success hasn’t ended there; using their prize money, the team have already built and tested a prototype which worked fantastically well. They have since built three more prototypes for humanitarian aid workers to take and test in the field for a real-time assessment of its capability. The team are hugely excited about the possibilities and have already established a company called Pembroke Innovations. They are hoping to commercialise their product and who knows what opportunities await them!
