19-20 July 2014

The Humanitarian Innovation Project will host its inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference (HIP2014) at the University of Oxford on 19-20 July 2014.

Over recent years, innovation has emerged as a topic of central relevance to the humanitarian sector. International organizations, NGOs, and the private sector have gradually explored how new products and processes drawn from outside the sector might begin to play a transformative role.

HIP2014 represents an opportunity to bring together the major stakeholders within the emerging humanitarian innovation debate, from across sectors, to consolidate knowledge, engage in debate, and develop a shared agenda for bringing innovation to the sector. We aim to bring together 150-180 delegates for a range of keynote addresses, panel sessions, exhibition demonstrations, and film and multimedia presentations. It will be the largest academic conference so far held on humanitarian innovation.

The Call for Papers is open and more details follow below.
