In the second part of the programme, you will join a project group with students from other learning streams. You will collaborate during virtual group sessions to solve a real-world challenge with a focus on entrepreneurship.

Around the central challenge, in which you will be working in interdisciplinary teams, Imperial Enterprise Lab will lead sessions covering topics such as:

  • What is entrepreneurship?
  • Working in cross-culture teams
  • Guided network
  • Introduction to ideation, generating and choosing ideas
  • Prototyping

Previous project themes have included robotics, wearable technology, space and future vision.

At the final showcase event, teams will present their solutions in front of an audience of fellow Global Summer School students and an Imperial Enterprise Lab judge. Prizes are given to the best projects.

This is a chance for you to share expertise, show originality, and develop some of the key skills that you will use at university and beyond, including teamwork, presentation and communication skills, as well as learn about the different elements of innovation and development of ideas.
