The innovation challenge: Accelerating digital higher education

Hosted by University of Leeds

Digital Universities UK will bring together higher education, industry and policy leaders working at the intersection of academic innovation and technology under one roof.

The event will present the latest challenges and opportunities of digital-first higher education along with cutting-edge start-ups and ideas that will reshape the future, forever.

Hosted in partnership with the University of Leeds, you can expect keynotes, interactive panels, live demonstrations, intimate discussions, practical workshops, unparalleled networking and much more.

Start-up Pitch Competition

18 April will host the final of our Start-up Pitch Competition. The aim is to find the best pre-seed funding edtech start-ups in the digital learning space looking to bring new ideas to the higher education community.

Entries will be judged by THE, the University of Leeds and our expert panel of edtech investors, and the 10 shortlisted start-ups will have the opportunity to join us at Digital Universities UK in Leeds on 17-20 April where the five finalists will be invited on stage in a special session on 18 April to pitch their product or innovation to our panel.

The winner will be interviewed by a THE journalist to share their story with our global digital audience, plus an invitation to join us as a speaker in 2024.

The entry deadline is 17:00 on Monday 20 March.
