The Summer of Student Innovation is a Jisc co-design project with RLUK, RUGIT, SCONUL, UCISA and ALT.
The competition is now in its third year where success entrants to the competitions receive a grant and support from Jisc to develop their education technology ideas, with the aim of improving students’ creative design, research, entrepreneurial and project management skills.
This year the competition and the support activities have been developed to be more inclusive, with a competition that requires no technical expertise and competitions solely for learners from further education and skills.
Jisc will develop the best ideas into apps and tools, support successful products to be piloted by institutions, and promote all ideas to other interested parties through sustainable routes.
We will be launching our next competition in March 2015 and we'll post details of how you can get involved on this page.

Jisc is now working to develop several projects into products so that universities and colleges can reap the benefit of the students’ work.
