Abstract

Final year undergraduates in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow may take a two-week, intensive course called Business and Bioscience. Student teams work together on the development of innovative bioscience products. After the two-week course, the students are required to plan and organize events that will be of benefit both to themselves and to the local community. Since 2008 there have been more than twelve events, ranging from “Safety on Campus” to “Style That’s Worthwhile.” This paper will examine the development of the events and the transition from student events to local community events.
