City University, London
In 2003, City University carried out a vast number of great projects ranging from teaching the elderly about IT to mentoring local school children in Tower Hamlets. In 2004, they have built a number of partnerships with local organisations.

Surrey University, Guildford
In 2003, the team worked on making Surrey a 'Fair Trade University' as a step towards turning Guildford into a 'Fair Trade Town'. They ran events on campus and developed relationships with local businesses. Their research is in the process of being published. In 2004 they have registered as a student union society which encourages student entrepreneurship and teaches enterprise to students. Next year they plan to encourage enterprise education in the community.
University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham team realised that their own student community needed support in developing skills and knowledge of entrepreneurship. They developed relationships with support organisations and arranged workshops and seminars led by entrepreneurs. They also set up real-life projects which helped the students to gain practical experience of enterprise. As a result of this, a number of students have set up student businesses.
Imperial College, London
The team at Imperial has identified a partner charity called REDES in South America. Together they are planning an international project in El Salvador. The aim of their project is to work with REDES to help the local population to help themselves by teaching sustainable building techniques in an area subject to earthquakes.
