Digital innovation at Oxford

The IT Innovation Challenges scheme supports innovative ideas that can be developed into digital projects and bring benefit to the University or enhance the staff or student experience.

We are excited to announce that the IT Innovation Challenges will be running three funding rounds in Hilary term 2019.

We welcome ideas for innovative digital projects that meet one of the three challenges:

IT Innovation Challenges (staff): innovative digital projects that bring benefit to the University (funding up to £40K per project)
• Summer of Innovation (students): realise an idea as a digital project supported by professional IT staff (paid summer internship)
• GLAM Labs (staff or students): adding value to the user experience of GLAM’s collections, buildings, resources or programmes through digital means (£8-15K per project)

You can submit your idea between 14 January and 4 February (noon) on the new Oxford Ideas platform (please use your University email to create an account). You can also visit the platform to view, comment and vote on ideas submitted by colleagues across the University.

If you have any questions that are not answered in the FAQs, please get in touch with us directly at innovation@it.ox.ac.uk.

For more details on the scheme and regular updates, visit the IT Innovation Challenges blog and our Facebook page.

The IT Innovation Challenges is funded by the University’s IT Capital Plan and administered by IT Services.
