This unit aims to allow students to examine the processes involved in recognising the potential of University based research to solve commercially valuable problems in the market place and gain a deeper understanding of one research area.

The unit will develop the competencies needed to recognise, develop and exploit a business opportunity that exploits a scientific idea within a commercial setting. You will carry out research, produce and present a business case in the form of a business plan and present to a panel.

You will develop a broad range of transferable skills required to effectively carry out, as a team, a real life project with many deliverables using an Enquiry-Based Learning (EBL) approach. This involves team working, negotiation, oral presentation, project management and reflection.
