Humanitarian Innovation Conference 'Facilitating Innovation'
Following the success of the inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference, the Humanitarian Innovation Project announces that #HIP2015 will again take place in Oxford in July 2015. The 2015 conference theme is ‘facilitating innovation’. As interest and dialogue around humanitarian innovation continues to expand, conference participants are invited to explore the challenges of creating an enabling environment for humanitarian innovation.
In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit, a key focus of the conference will explore how we enable innovation by and for affected communities. What does it mean to take a human-centred approach seriously, and to engage in co-creation with affected populations? It will also seek to examine what facilitation means across the wider humanitarian ecosystem, and how we can better convene the collective talents of people within and across traditional and non-traditional humanitarian actors.
