HEIF – the final instalment
(This is literally just the title to highlight the end of this blog series, not the end of HEIF)
When writing these blog posts, I wasn’t expecting them to turn into a trilogy from the planned double feature, but here we are.
In this third instalment of knowledge exchange and HEIF related stories, I’m going to share with you some potential project ideas and examples of HEIF projects from other institutions.
The small fund is for getting a KE project started or concluding a KE project.
- Do you have an idea but need a business to collaborate with and are unsure how to do this?
- Do you think you have a great project idea but don’t know what market opportunities there are (if any!)?
- Do you have a business contact who is keen to work with you, but they do not have the available funding for consultancy?
- Are you working with a charity and need a big of funding to get your project to the next stage?
- Are you seeking public engagement ideas or projects?
If ANY of these apply to you directly or are similar situations that you have been in, get in touch.
To give some examples as to how different institutions use their HEIF funding, here are some ideas and links to searchable projects:
At the University of Southampton, their HEIF allocation as funded projects such as; Video Game Photography: An Examination of Reflective Gameplay, Participation and Responsible Innovation for Co-Design for Exchange and Digital Police Officer: Linguistic Analysis to Identify Cybercriminals.
The University of Winchester have funded projects such as; Stormbreak: inspiring movement for positive mental health in primary school and HELP (Health Enhancing Lifestyle Programme) Hampshire Stroke Clinic. Further information on these projects can be found here.
The University of Surrey have invested some of their HEIF funds into a Living Lab. This approach to user-centred research and open innovation already has a string of achievements since it’s conception in November 2019 and has funded a series of small collaborative projects in areas such as environmental behaviour and community regeneration.
The University of Sussex refocused some of their HEIF funding on Covid-19 relief to their local area where possible, as did the University of Liverpool.
Do get in touch to discuss your KE project and how HEIF might be able to help you.
As a further note, a specific Proof of Concept strand will be available shortly, please do look out for information on this.
