From
17 July 2015 to 18 July 2015
in Oxford (United Kingdom)
Organised byThe Humanitarian Innovation Project, Refugee Studies Centre, Oxford Department of International Development

Following the success of the inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference,
the Humanitarian Innovation Project announces that #HIP2015 [1] 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.
