A term used to describe the action of students coming together to make a difference.
‘Bionove’ is an amalgamation of ‘bio’ and ‘nove’ as you can see, comes from the tagline, ‘Novelty and Innovation’. It is a student initiative; primarily, a platform for students to innovate, create and explore their potential in technical fields and non-technical ones as well. Through Bionove, we aim to set up an atmosphere to discuss our ideas and build an interactive student network.
Bionove hopes to go by the definition and make a difference.
