Innovation 2023

Invigorating Innovation at Warwick 

Welcome to Innovation 2023, Warwick Enterprise’s flagship campaign, supporting academic departments to develop innovation in their curricula. 

In 2022 we worked with 27 academic departments, helping to create activities that engaged students, shaped new practice, and allow staff to explore alternative ideas and approaches. 

Innovation 2023 will continue this work, offering funding and support to all academic departments so that they develop activities, explore practices, or empower students. 

The Opportunity:  

Warwick Enterprise has up to £1,000 for each academic department, we can also provide support to help create, shape, and deliver projects. 

The funds can be used in a number of ways, examples include:  

  • Developing modules and/or programmes; 
  • Creating an activity, event, or task; 
  • Paying guest speakers or temporary staff; 
  • Purchasing materials, software, or hardware; 
  • Engaging with student societies; 
  • Funding a trip or visit; 
  • Bursaries; or 
  • Staff training and development. 

Our aim is that this funding encourages academics to try something new and exciting, to take a risk, explore an idea, and see if these can become part of normal practice. 

We encourage staff to consider notions of interdisciplinarity, and sustainable development in their expressions of interest.

Ideas can be delivered through a variety of methods including (but not limited to) in-person, on-line, or blended. 

Previous projects

How do we Engage? 

The funding round for 2022/23 is now closed, we will notify staff when we open the 2023/24 round.


While we will consider any idea, our preference is for projects which consider how Innovation 2023 support could be used as a launchpad for further, sustainable activity, or as proof-of-concept funding to make a case for additional support.
