The eLife Innovation Sprint is a two-day challenge on 10-11 May 2018 for developers, designers, technologists and researchers to collaboratively prototype innovations that bring cutting-edge technology to open research.
The eLife Innovation Initiative have been working to improve research transparency and accessibility, and accelerate discovery in the life sciences, by developing open-source technologies in collaboration with the wider community. They have heard many excellent ideas for transforming how the latest science is shared, built upon and recognised, and they want to create a space that would help translate these ideas into action.
By bringing ideators, creators and users together for the Innovation Sprint, they hope to provide space, time and access to diverse skill sets for the community to develop their ideas into prototypes and forge new collaborations.
eLife invite you — whether change maker or web wrangler, UX champion or data tinkerer — to apply to participate in person.
Applications will close at 9am GMT on March 5 2018, and we aim to communicate the outcome of each application by March 23 2018.
