Tesco Bank Digital invites undergraduate students from Informatics, Product Design (ECA) and the Business School at the University of Edinburgh to apply to join one of eight cross disciplinary teams working together during Innovative Learning Week.  Teams will respond to a specific brief to produce a mobile application (app) for Tesco Bank which will address a key business issue.  Tesco Digital will brief teams on the Monday morning, 17 February in the Business School, giving teams 5 days to prepare ideas to present back to members of the Tesco Bank Digital management team at their offices in Haymarket, Edinburgh on Friday afternoon 21 February 2014.
