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: “Student ideas competition” and “Supporting technology startup projects”. 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.
