Inspired by comments at the latest kick-off meeting, IT Innovation held an informal get-together for current projects on July 27. Despite summer being upon us, nine projects were able to attend and contributed by sharing experiences and ideas over cake and tea. There were representatives from both student and staff projects, and from projects at all stages of completion, from new projects that have not yet started to projects about to finish. It was truly inspirational to hear the participants talk about what they do, sharing experiences and suggestions, and some good ideas for future work and collaborations emerged. It was suggested that cross-project contact be facilitated further, and we will look to do that, for example by sharing contact details, publishing more up-to-date information about projects, and arranging further sessions like the one just held. With cake, of course.
