The Faculties Innovative Student's Hub (FISH) is a space for students to come together, form interdisciplinary teams and create solutions to real-world problems.

The problems can be identified by you, putting you in the lead for tackling issues that you find exciting and relevant. Maybe you have an idea that could compete with Uber, or perhaps you could completely change the experience of being a student in Liverpool.

Alternatively, you can find solutions for problems identified by partners, including Alder Hey children’s hospital.

Set in the Central Teaching Laboratory, you will have the space necessary to create electronic and computational solutions to problems. Funding will be available to support the development of selected projects.

Come and meet like-minded people and develop skills for your CV.
