SYNIAD is here to help students become innovators by growing their ideas and confidence.
(SYNIAD is Welsh for ‘IDEA’ – it is pronounced SUN-YAD)
The focus of SYNIAD 2019 is our ideas competition.
More than ever, the world needs great ideas to disrupt the ordinary. We have worked with Cardiff University’s Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformation (https://cast.ac.uk/) to challenge students to share an idea that would improve one of these areas:
- Food and Diet
- Material consumption
- Transport and mobility
- Heating and cooling
It is an incredibly valuable skill to develop and share an idea. We encourage as many of Cardiff University students as possible to give it a go!
The winning idea will receive £1,250, supported by Santander Universities – as well as prizes for runners-up.
Everyone who enters will get an exclusive booking link to the SYNIAD lecture from James Poulter on the evening of 19 November 2019. James Poulter is the former Head of Lego Group’s Emerging Platform and founder of Voice2.
