about innovation conference

We are delighted to announce that we are back with the 6th edition of the o2h collaborative innovation conference where we will endeavour to bring together an exciting community of live operators in science, technology, academia, entrepreneurship, social enterprise, non-profit, investment, art, media, creative, engineering, law, architecture, finance, and big business.

Every year, we organise Innovation Conference because at o2h, we enjoy working together with others and not trying to go it alone, not least because it’s the cross-fertilisation of ideas across boundaries that can spur exciting new innovations. We are passionate about playing our part in the creation of a collaborative community around innovation in Cambridge, UK, and Ahmedabad, India, which we hope will inspire all of us in these ecosystems to work ever more closely for our collective love of innovation.
