Oxford University Innovation and TORCH are delighted to announce the launch of the second Humanities Innovation Challenge Competition. We are seeking innovative and entrepreneurial ideas from those whose research is based in a humanities discipline (affiliated to any department or faculty within the collegiate University) which they would like to bring to a wider audience. 

The teams will get the chance to pitch their idea to a judging panel of entrepreneurs, creative thinkers and innovation experts. On offer is a first prize of £1,000 cash along with £5,000 of in-kind support in addition to second and third prizes of in-kind mentor support. All entries will be viewed by an expert at Oxford University Innovation and useful feedback provided.
