Creating Digital Futures: IL138/IL438


This exciting module offers the opportunity to work in diverse interdisciplinary teams in response to a digital innovation competition brief set by Warwick’s incubator ‘Creative Futures’ in partnership with the Student Enterprise Fund. Teams will have the option to apply post-module to a global external competition (e.g. set by Microsoft, Google,
Finastra, etc.)

The modules aims to:

  • Provide students with the skills and support required to work as an interdisciplinary team to develop an innovative idea/product.
  • Provide students with a context (the brief set by Warwick’s incubator ‘Creative Features’ in partnership with the Student Enterprise Fund) in which to focus and realise their innovative idea/product.
  • Encourage students to evaluate their proposal/tool in the wider ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) context, including policy and regulation.
