The Challenge Prize Centre is looking for an enthusiastic intern to join us for 6 months on an exciting project blending cutting edge transportation and logistics technology, urban design and the future of cities.
Nesta’s Challenge Prize Centre uses prizes to stimulate innovative solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face. We sit within the Innovation Lab where we support the Lab’s mission to scale innovation for the public good. There’s about 45 of us and you’ll quickly feel part of our dynamic and purpose-driven team. From the outset, you’ll be part of our regular training programmes, external seminars and team lunches.
The growing potential of unmanned aerial vehicles – drones – and their capacity to transform our cities has captured the imagination of technologists and the public alike. Next-generation drones could potentially transform our cities, enabling on-demand meal delivery, inspection of bridges, the transportation of live-saving organs or helping to reduce social isolation, just to name a few.
We are looking for an intern with a background in urban planning and design, transport planning and policy or a related field to assist in our work to explore how the development of drones might integrate within our cities.
Our project will explore actual scenarios for the development and integration of drones in real-world locations. To do so effectively, we will investigate the urban planning and design, infrastructural, transport and associated dimensions that cities, towns and rural regions will want to consider when integrating drones into the fabric of their local environments.
The successful applicant will work with our wider on this unique engagement and will interact with city stakeholders, technologists, civil society stakeholders and a wide range of subject matter experts.
The role and associated activities would cover a number of exciting areas, but would not be limited to:
Nesta is a global innovation foundation. Our mission is to spark and shape new ideas to improve how the world works for everyone. We use our knowledge, networks, funding and skills to take on big challenges, working in partnership with others to make change happen. We are a UK charity and our work is enabled by a financial endowment.
We see - we spot opportunities in challenges
We spark - we generate novel ideas to solve big problems that matter to everyone
We shape - we provide the help needed for promising ideas to grow and adapt
We shift - we join with others to back world-changing ideas
