The IT Innovation Challenges Showcase took place last night to celebrate the innovative projects funded through the University's IT Innovation Scheme. The scheme supports projects that bring benefit to the University or enhance the staff or student experience at Oxford through digital means.
The event, which took place at the Mathematical Institute, showcased more than 20 projects from initiatives such as Inkpath, go_girl, VESPA, Workplace Finder and VR-AR Oxford Hub. Representatives from the projects presented their work to a captivated audience through information stands, flash talks and a panel discussion. The 3D printing competition was one of many highlights with more than 30 innovative ideas submitted. The event was well attended and visitors left positive feedback using Meetoo, an online polling tool. Representatives also enjoyed the networking aspect of the event with many of them reporting that they would like to participate in a similar event in the future.
