i-Teams works closely with several partners to deliver our programmes.
Centre for Global Equality (Development i-Teams)
The Centre for Global Equality (CGE) evolves innovative solutions to global challenges. Our aim is to solve problems that undermine the wellbeing of the poorer half of the world’s population. Focusing on people who live on less than $3 a day, we facilitate collaboration between business, academia and civil society, drawing particularly on capacity in one of the world’s leading universities and companies in the Cambridge Cluster – the most successful entrepreneurial ecosystem in Europe.
CGE has 26 member organisations that work in 79 low and middle income countries. In 2017, CGE member organisations ran over 65 projects with over 46 partner projects. While focus spreads across most sectors, the CGE network has particular strength in Technology for Development, Water, & Solar Energy in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and India.
Cambridge Academy for Therapeutic Sciences (Medical i-Teams)
The Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences (CATS) is a platform established to facilitate the development of new therapeutics and support the education and training of the next generation of world-leading researchers.
We are creating a structure that transcends traditional boundaries between disciplines and between academics and industrialists. CATS provides a unique outwardly-focused mechanism in which fundamental and applied research into therapeutics and diagnostics can flourish and be translated into patient treatments with maximum efficiency.
Working in partnership, we are creating and supporting a vibrant, connected community of scientists working to tackle research and policy challenges. The Academy embraces academics from across the University, scientists and managers from industry, key opinion leaders and thinkers concerned with regulatory, legal and policy issues. Local, national and international interactions will be facilitated by the structures and principles developed as part of the Academy concept. The Academy will also develop and deliver training and research programmes (Masters and PhD) to educate a new generation of scientists and clinicians in fields as diverse as toxicology, pharmacology, systems biology, medicinal chemistry, physics, engineering and mathematics as applied to medicine.
