The Idea Translation Lab is a 12-week course, supported by The NTR Foundation, which runs during Hilary Term. Taking place in the Science Gallery the course is part of Trinity College’s broad curriculum offering. The aim of the course is to provide science, humanities and art undergraduate students with the possibility of collaborating and creating projects together.
The programme aims to equip students with skills beyond their discipline boundaries to take creative project ideas and interrogate, applying both design and entrepreneurial skills to produce projects with real world outcomes. These projects may have impact along three axes: social, cultural and commercial. Furthermore the course will encourage students to reflect critically on the broader perspectives around the cultural, ethical and economic role of science in society including science policy and the commercialization of new ideas.
