We invite researchers currently researching topics relating to our centre’s work to present and stir discussion. These research seminars are intended to connect active researchers and students on the topics of innovation, technology and management for development. This is a chance to exchange ideas, learn and connect not just with TMCD staff, researchers and fellows but also the innovation research community at large at Oxford. These afternoons are a great opportunity to seek feedback from our peers and gain new perspective on our own work.

The Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD) acts as a hub for knowledge exchange and dissemination of research through its annual conferences, workshops, seminars and lectures. Each year the Centre draws some of the world’s finest thinkers to Oxford to debate some of the most pressing issues relating to technology and management for development.
