In partnership with the University of Glasgow and Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, CENSIS is delivering two workshops to help undergraduate students find out if they have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.

Running across two separate sessions over two days in November 2021 and February 2022, this pilot programme will challenge students to think strategically, identify problems that need solutions, and channel their entrepreneurial curiosity.

The workshops are open to undergradate and taught postgraduate students of any discipline who are registered at the University of Glasgow, Glasgow School of Art or Robert Gordon University Aberdeen,

Students will work in teams tackling a real-world challenge that will require them to explore potential technology solutions based around the Internet of Things. The focus of the weekend workshops is on new ideas and solving challenges, and students don’t need to have a technical background or be studying engineering or computer science to take part.

Cash prizes totalling £2,500 will be available at each weekend, with the top team winning £1,000.

There are 50 places available at each weekend and application is competitive.

Students interested in the programme can find out more, and apply via the CENSIS website.
