EIRA Innovation Weekender
In March this year, EIRA supported the Innovation Weekender led by the University of Kent. This residential course offered entrepreneurial students from across EIRA partner institutions the chance to develop solutions for real business challenges, including those set by challenge sponsor, PepsiCo.
The course took place at Bowles Rocks, Tunbridge Wells and gave students the opportunity to work with others from around the region, as well as taking part in sessions on creative thinking, commercialisation, presentation and active listening skills. Outdoor activities such as rock climbing and archery were also a great opportunity for team working, skill development and problem solving.
