Call for Papers: Humanitarian Innovation Conference 2015
The Humanitarian Innovation Project at ODID is delighted to announce the 2015 Humanitarian Innovation Conference, in partnership with the World Humanitarian Summit.
Hosted in Oxford on 17 & 18 July 2015, the theme of this year’s conference 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.
