The first such formal agreement of collaboration is expected to materialise in April/May 2017 with The Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London. The Imperial College writes: “We see enormous potential synergy in our development of an accelerator programme and M.Sc. in Clean Tech Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the objective of your institutions... We look forward to potential collaborative ventures between our institutions. We anticipate that subject to all necessary formal and institutional requirements at Imperial that the Students of the College of Startups will be offered the opportunity to be mentored by the Centre for Climate Change Innovation at Imperial’s Advanced HackSpace facility...over the summer. Out of this I very much hope that other joint work will emerge.”
