Highland Innovation Week

Highland Innovation Week is a college-wide initiative bringing inspirational and enterprising organisations face-to-face with students. The purpose of the week is to inspire innovation, creativity and enterprise in our region.  17-21 March 2014 will be our third Highland Innovation Week. Check out the exciting events that will be creating a real buzz this year by clicking on Highland Innovation Week 2014.

Create Enterprise Club

Why not come along to our Enterprise Club and meet like-minded people?  The Club is for all students and staff who want to be inspired and have fun learning about enterprise. We have an interesting guest or two each time and the feedback is great! No need to book! Normally, last Wednesday of each month – see website for details.

Bespoke Courses

UHI Business Idea Competition

Ever thought that you could improve on an existing product or service? Ever had an idea to solve a problem in the community or improve the lot of a particular group of people, for example a business that would help students enjoy their studies even more, an idea to help the environment and so on? The UHI Business Idea Competition is for you. In the 2012 competition we had £7,500 in cash prizes and 170 entries.  Will you be a winner in 2013?
