The Summer of Student Innovation is a Jisc co-design project developed with our strategic partners across higher education, further education and skills.
The competition is now in its fourth year where successful 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 we’re running two competitions:
Your entry could be the spark of an idea, or it could be ready to pilot with institutions – but whatever stage it’s at, it will need to have the potential for widespread use across higher and further education and skills.
Following the competition, we will develop a selection of the successful projects into products. In the past, we have funded a platform for research participants, a student feedback tool, apps to help apprentices and tools to support accessibility and inclusion.
