Enabling Practice Innovation Challenge (EPIC) 2017
Identify a problem in health and social care practice and a solution. This may be product based or it may be a redesign of practice and procedure.
There are prizes of £500 for the winning team, £300 for second prize and four prizes of £100 for runners up. All finalists will receive a certificate.
Remember – small ideas can grow into great ones – let’s see how far yours can go…
For those of you prepared to give it a go – thank you – I’m sure it will be a really powerful experience that will teach you a great deal.
This competition is open to third year undergraduate
students from the School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Health

Stage two: finalists are invited to present their idea to a panel of judges – we like to call them dragons! – on 1 June 2017 in an event in the Rolle Building. All people who submit to the challenge may register free to attend the event.
