Join us at the Rosalind Franklin Appathon: Prize and Tech Day - a national app competition to empower and recognise women as leaders in STEMM.

There will be talk's given by UCL Provost Professor Michael Arthur and author and historian Professor Jenifer Glynn (Rosalind Franklin's sister). We will then hear pitches from the app finalists and winners will be announced by a fantastic panel of judges, including Baroness Martha Lane Fox (Founder, Lastminute.com), Andrew Eland (Director, Social Impact Engineering, Google) and Dame Athene Donald (Professor of Experimental Physics, University of Cambridge). There will also be plenty of time for networking and a chance to try out some of the apps!

This national app competition is funded by the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award, won by UCL Professor Rachel McKendry, and organised by UCL, i-sense, UCL Enterprise and the London Centre for Nanotechnology.
