Creating (C1B)

Create a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.


We will actively seek to develop a strong BU community where collaboration is an important part of our normal working pattern.

We will support interdisciplinary activities that increase the awareness of, and appetite for securing, external sources of funding to support core academic endeavours and projects that contribute more widely to the culture of entrepreneurship.

We will increasingly embed entrepreneurship into all of our courses and by 2015 this will be clearly evident.

By 2018 this will have been further enhanced and BU will have established a UK–wide reputation for this distinctive strength.
