JISC Joint Innovation Forum 2010

Welcome to the JISC Joint Innovation Forum 2010 (JIF2010) blog, this has been set up to support discussion around the event.  We will be updating the blog with news and developments regularly before the event and will be recording outputs and key messages afterwards.

The key to successful and sustainable innovation is sharing ideas, developments and discussion. This blog provides you with the opportunity to join the discussions and contribute your ideas and developments to the Forum.

When and Where
JIF2010 will be happening on the 28th and 29th July 2010 at Royal Holloway, University of London. Projects will be invited to register for the event by their programme manager in spring 2010.

Why is it happening?
The purpose of the Joint Innovation Forum is to bring together over 200 JISC funded projects for a networking, sharing and learning event.  JIF2010 will provide a forum for projects and programmes to meet, engage, share ideas and form useful relationships.

Previous events
In previous years, this event has proved highly successful and extremely popular with delegates as is evidenced in the feedback below :

“I think one of the things that was acheived was building a community around the innovation activities supported by JISC. “

“There was a good balance of timed sessions and more flexible time just to talk to people.”

“Excellent mix of workshops with a variety of formats, thoughtful and informative plenary presenations and a stimulating mix of people attending.”

“It was for specialists, but that meant you could get right into the interesting stuff without lots of general introductions; inputs/responses tended to be well-informed, and so on.”

“I used the breaks for coffee and lunch to network and that’s what I found most useful. Not sure if others would but my gut feeling is that leaving unstructured time for groups or individuals to meet up is the most useful way of getting networking and ideas sharing going.”
