Digifest returns on 12-13 March 2024 and invites attendees to imagine the future of research – "not the inevitable, but what educators, researchers and students want it to be".

Throughout the two-day event participants can look forward to more than 30 presentations, panel discussions, workshops and keynote sessions designed to spark discussion and innovation across the tertiary education and research sector. Key themes can be found in the ‘about digifest’ section of the Jisc website.

The event will again be held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham and online. Registration is now open to attendees, and Jisc members and customers receive two free in-person tickets per organisation. The first 100 Jisc research members to register for Digifest 2024 using the code RESEARCHDF24 will receive 25% off their ticket price.

Jisc CEO, Heidi Fraser-Krauss, said: “Digifest 2024 promises to be a celebration of innovation across the UK tertiary education sector, showcasing the great work being done here and now, and, importantly, giving attendees the opportunity to imagine the future of education and research.

“At the 2023 event you asked for more opportunities to network with peers and experts, and we have responded to this, with increased numbers of roundtables, demonstrations and workshops to help attendees realise the opportunities, and overcome the challenges, associated with digital transformation. In a year that has seen new developments in generative AI change the way people teach, learn and work, I have been inspired by the resilience and adaptability shown by individuals and teams across education and research, and I'm excited to see what comes next.”

Digifest 2024 is a CPD accredited event. Attendees can contribute their learning time towards individual continuing professional development goals.
