Fostering Entrepreneurship in UBC
Our 2017 program focuses on three main themes in engineering: Health, Energy & Environment and Food.
Health covers a wide range of topics including biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Examples include medical devices, implants and any form of technology that targets diseases or increases a patient's quality of life.
With recent developments in the field of cleantech, energy and environment are increasingly intertwined. Innovations in this field include energy storage technology, processes that convert waste to value-added materials and renewable energy.
Food security is an important topic globally. Entrepreneurship in this field include improvements in agricultural efficiency, strategies for reducing food wastage and innovative clean water technology.
