Abstract

The ability of scientists to work effectively in interdisciplinary teams is becoming increasingly important in today’s evolving World. To prepare our bioscience students with the necessary graduate attributes, we have introduced strategies that promote/embed enterprise activities into the curriculum through the use of real World challenges. Key to this strategy is placing students in interdisciplinary teams working on current/pressing issues set by employers (industrial /community partners) to develop outputs with real value to employers. This approach brings fresh innovative thinking for employers whilst giving our students hands-on learning to develop their skills and provide the link between study and employment.
