 Get involved in IF Oxford

The Expression of Interest process is closed for this year.

Dates for the science and ideas Festival:

11 Oct — 3 Nov 2024 (TBC)

IF Oxford, the science and ideas Festival is a high-profile opportunity for people to explore innovative ideas and creative research in and around our vibrant city. Combining science, technology, engineering and mathematics with arts, humanities and culture, we bring together researchers, authors, creative professionals and community groups to share imaginative and thought‑provoking ideas with large public audiences.

Browse the sections below to discover all you need to know about getting involved in this year’s Festival as an event / activity contributor, then submit your expression of interest using the yellow button on the right.

You can see how Expressions of Interest have translated into a magazine, a vibrant programme of events and an engaging social, print, public-realm and broadcast campaign by looking around this website, social media platforms and across the city of Oxford:
