We’re excited to share the news with you that UCL Enterprise, i-sense, the London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Royal Society have launched the Rosalind Franklin Appathon- a national app competition to empower and recognise women as leaders in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine).

Apply now at before 4th January 2016 for a chance to win prizes from a panel of high profile judges, including Baroness Martha Lane Fox (Founder of, Andrew Eland (Director of Social Impact Engineering, Google) and Professor Dame Athene Donald (Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge), and funding towards app development through the UCL Mobile Academy.

Our competition has two different challenges:

Challenge 1: To develop new mobile phone apps to empower women in STEMM. The competition is open to both women and men. Whether you’re a complete novice with a good idea, a wannabe coder or a seasoned app developer, we want to hear from you!

Challenge 2: To recognise leading women in STEMM who have pioneered new apps for research and societal good. Help us identify and support the female role models who are making a difference by submitting a 200 word nomination statement.

Today, there are more mobile phones than people on the planet and over 100 billion app downloads a year. We are inviting teams and individuals from all backgrounds to take advantage of this digital revolution to reach out to a global audience through apps, empower and recognise a new generation of women leaders and change public perceptions of women in the digital space.
