The IT Innovation Challenges, part of the University’s IT Capital Plan, support small start-up digital projects that will bring a benefit to the University. They aim to fund innovative projects which will enhance the staff or student experience at Oxford through digital means. Successful projects may go on to become full services or work with Oxford University Innovation on spin-out opportunities.

The scheme not only allows participants to realise an innovative project idea, but it also supports their personal development. Many of the previous participants have reported that the scheme helped them grow on a personal level.
Frequently, the projects realised as part of the scheme are related to teaching and learning with technology at Oxford.
