Enterprise and Innovation Week is returning to UON for 2017. The week is dedicated to celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit of UONs students and staff. A range of activities have been scheduled for the week with a focus on inspiring and supporting the development of skills required to be a successful future innovator and entrepreneur.

Whether you are interested in one of the many Master Classes, being inspired by our Entrepreneurial speaker Stephen Key or our successful alumni in the Speed Mentoring sessions there is something for everyone.
