The Humanitarian Innovation Project hosted the 2015 Humanitarian Innovation Conference in Oxford on 17 & 18 July, in partnership with the World Humanitarian Summit.

In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016, conference participants worked together to explore and discuss the challenges of creating an enabling environment for humanitarian innovation.

This second annual conference on humanitarian innovation contributed to the expansion of a broader 'humanitarian innovation network' that was established last year, offering a space to discuss possible ways forward for enabling and facilitating innovation 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.
