Profile
Cambridge University Eco Racing (CUER) is a 60 strong student organisation that designs, build and races solar powered vehicles.
Since their founding in 2007, they have been the UK's number one for solar vehicle development and achieved 2,047km on solar power at the World Solar Challenge in 2015 with their latest vehicle, Evolution.
Their team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. Through exploring new areas of ultra-efficient vehicle technology, they aim to challenge the accepted concept for solar vehicles with their unique design. In addition they provide students at Cambridge University with a learning platform for applied engineering, strategic planning and leadership in the real world.

Bringing Graphene and New Materials to Market

Remember the computer triode? Unless you're an early-tech enthusiast, it's unlikely. Used as switches in the first electronic computers, these vacuum tubes consumed a great deal of power. They were unreliable and upon the invention of silicon chips, were quickly replaced. A new material has the potential to shift entire industries. Here, Kari Hjelt, Head of Innovation of the Graphene Flagship explains how graphene is set to do the same.
