Yesterday Jisc held a one-hour webinar on the Access to Resources and Open Innovation initiative.
During the session, speakers informed attendees about about the aims of the initiative and how they were achieved, together with examples of how projects brought about benefits to organisations:
- Chris Batt OBE, Critical Friend to the initiative provided an overview and background to the activities and projects
- Siobhan Jordan from Interface Scotland described how their project allowed them to embrace technology to allow Scottish Universities to engage online with businesses in rural South-West Scotland
- Emma Nolan from Liverpool John Moore’s University talked about how the Open LivIn project has contributed to the success of the Innovation Commons
- Simon Whittemore from Jisc summed up the webinar, describing how the initiative fits with current policy.
