‘Ingenuity’ is a tried and tested process for creative problem solving and radical (as opposed to incremental) innovation developed at Nottingham University’s Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship The process has a three-fold structure: defining the problem to be solved, identifying a wide range of possibilities, before finally determining the most appropriate solution. Teams must comprise 3 - 5 students.

Students are encouraged to apply as individual participants. Teams will then be organised by the UQ Student Employability Centre.
