In 2016-17, we worked with Universities Scotland to support the sector-wide Making it Happen initiative. Focusing on enterprise & entrepreneurship in Scotland, the initiative set out eight aims to achieve by 2018. All universities in Scotland have agreed to work towards achieving those aims.
We worked to support the sector during this project, to embed enterprise & entrepreneurship education within the curriculum. We ran a sector-wide event to encourage the sharing of good practice. We also organised a webinar series, exploring the challenges and successes experienced by HE institutions across the UK and abroad.
Quality Enhancement Network
We hosted a Quality Enhancement Network event on enterprise and entrepreneurship in Glasgow. The event included three case studies from across Scotland. We focused on current developments in the area and sharing practice. The event also included a discussion around the review of the QAA Guidance on Enterprise and Entrepreneurship.
We ran seven webinars exploring enterprise and entrepreneurship education in higher education. You can select from the following webinars:
- The HEInnovate self-assessment tool
- Embedding enterprise & entrepreneurship in the curriculum
- Embedding Innovation and enterprise in the curriculum
- Engaging students from non STEM subjects

Creating Entrepreneurial Campuses
