The Idea Exploration series is a fantastic opportunity to develop your idea in preparation for the All-Innovate idea competition. Whether you have an idea, or you are looking to learn about the process of developing an idea and meet like minded people, this series is for you!

The workshops will give you the opportunity to learn about the key concepts within the idea development journey, and are an excellent opportunity to meet and network with students from across the university. You may be looking for additional skill sets to build your team or have skills to offer to an existing idea. Each week, we will be hosting networking drinks after the workshops which will be a great opportunity to explore those potential synergies with your fellow students.


Use this as an opportunity to develop your idea ready to apply to All-Innovate, Oxford’s first university wide, inter-college ideas competition. Workshops are open to students from all Divisions and Colleges and are a fantastic chance to build your CV, meet new people and learn from our leading experts and facilitators.
