£5,000 grants available to tech-savvy students with bright ideas
21 May 2013
JISC's Futures Forum is offering students with ideas on how to improve university life using digital technology up to £5,000 in funding through its Summer of Student Innovation project.
The aim of this pilot study is to enable students to solve specific problems in higher education, be they in research, education or university life. The organisers are looking for small, practical ideas, and any student registered at a UK university can enter an idea in the form of a two- to five-minute video.
The ideas will initially be whittled down by an online vote, with all videos receiving at least 150 votes from three or more institutions then being reviewed by the judging panel.
Successful teams will spend the summer developing technologies which will be embedded for a trial period in volunteer universities and then offered to other interested institutions in a sustainable manner. The teams will be able to discuss their work with other students and technical experts at networking events.
The deadline for both ideas submission and voting is 5pm, June 17 2013.
To find out more, visit the Summer of Student Innovation website.
