The Collaborative Ideas session is used to get people talking about their work. You can discuss the work you're doing, work you would like to do, or problems you are facing. Other people in the group can then talk about how they could help get your new project off the ground, or help solve the problem you are facing. This is an excellent way of generating projects Ideas for the Hackday.
Do you want your collaborative idea to make it to the Hackday?
Some ideas are so good that they simply need to be realised. This is where the Hackday comes in: at the end of the Collaborative Ideas session, you can state whether your idea should be pitched during the Hackday.
If you want your idea to be submitted to the Hackday, someone in your group must nominate themselves as the Hackday Idea Proposer (the person who will pitch the idea at the start of the Hackday in an attempt to attract a team to work on the idea). The Hackday idea proposer must put their name and email address in the appropriate fields of the Ideas form (see below for detail). If these fields are left blank, the idea will not be carried through to the Hackday.
