Penn Technologies, Your Ideas

Penn Engineers are working to tackle some of medicine’s most fundamental challenges, and they’ve invented amazing technologies along the way. Each year, Penn students have the chance to use these technologies to change the world.

The Y-Prize challenges students to create a viable commercial application for Penn research. This is your chance to take technology out of the lab and into the marketplace, to transform invention into true innovation.

The Y-Prize will return in the Fall semester of 2016 with new technologies and a $10,000 prize. Stay tuned.
