LQB512 BioInnovation and Entrepreneurship Project

Unit synopsis

Employment opportunities in the global bioindustry span the gamut from research through to product marketing.  Business development skills coupled with high-level generic skills (collaboration, communication, networking and professionalism) are as much in demand by the bioindustry as an advanced knowledge of bioscience disciplines.   The BioInnovation & Entrepreneurship (BIE) Project Unit is a 24 credit point work-integrated learning framework that aims to provide you with opportunities to apply and build on foundational bioindustry-oriented knowledge and skills that bridge the divide between the worlds of bioscience and biobusiness. The BIE Project Unit features a substantial industry-focused project whereby student teams (or virtual companies) will value add to intellectual property and advance concept ideas towards a commercial product. Within this start-up environment, you will work with industry and academic mentors to learn skills to translate science research into products for the global marketplace. Coupled with the project activities will be opportunities to engage in industry networking events that will further facilitate a professional identity.
