  • Sponsorship

    Without the generous donations from and collaboration with our sponsors the Cambridge AUV would not have been able to acheive what they have done to date. We currently have a range of sponsors who support us with inkind and cash donations and we are always looking to extend our collaborations.


    We tailor our relationship with each sponsor so that it provides the best benefits for both parties and can offer exposure opportunities around Cambridge and on National Media. We have written articles for several journals, have a large number of people who visit our website and have even featured on the bbc website. We also advertise and display our work around Cambridge several times a year and have won prizes for our displays. The team is currently growing both in terms of size and profile so we are looking for people to help us continue on this path.
