The eLife Innovation Sprint is a collaborative event bringing together 70 developers, designers, technologists, researchers, data scientists and more to design open technological solutions to redefine the ways we do and share research . The 2020 Sprint takes place September 2–3 in Cambridge, UK.

Reflecting on the feedback we’ve received and our learnings from the past two years, we’ve made some changes to the format of the event, with the hope to bring the community closer together, and towards our shared vision.

The call for projects is open between March 18 and April 13. We invite all open innovators interested in participating in this exciting event to join us at our upcoming webinar, where we will give more details on the new format, project proposal submission and general application processes, and answer your questions.

Please register to join the webinar. If you cannot join us in real-time but have questions that you would like to ask, please put your questions on this open agenda before the webinar.
