WHY?

Academia took a digital turn in 2020. 

With academic life by necessity moving online, scholars have to develop new ways of conducting and disseminating research.

Video tools are becoming essential to research and teaching. And yet, academics do not have the technical skills required to produce high-quality video content. [1] Shifting online generated increased workload, stress and disengagement among academics, leading poorer research outcomes. [2]

At the cutting-edge of e-research, OxCo draws on an intersectoral collaboration between scholars and videographers to produce high-quality video content and highly engaging e-events. 

With their improved cost-efficiency and reach, e-events are the future of academia. Requiring no international flights or mountains of printed programs, they are also better for the planet. For conference organizers, virtual meetings mean lighter logistics, and substantially lower costs [3]– while drawing larger crowds. Online events are also more efficient. For participants, they mean less travel time, no jet lag, and no hassle with airport taxis and hotel bookings [4,3].  Online conferences are more democratic, scalable, and accessible. That’s why we developed a a unique skill set to organise stunning e-events.

Environmentally friendly and cost-effective, online events also allow scholars from all around the world to connect instantly. There is, however, a missing ingredient in this equation: Physical conferences were a lot of fun. Conference dinners and coffee breaks mattered.

At OxCo, we know that informal conversations can develop into ground-breaking collaborations. That’s why we convene exhilarating scientific events, enabling scholars to connect over formal sessions, as well as social and networking activities, designed to enhance online academic life.

WH0?

Building on a vast amount of experience with organising and running academic conferences, our team designs unique digital events – ranging from weekly seminars to annual conferences. Find out more about our different formats here. Drawing on a decade of experience in producing high-quality video content, we help you spread ideas that matter. Tell us your scientific objectives, and our dedicated team will turn your idea into a fully-fledged digital event.

How?

Based on your scientific objectives and audience, we design one-of-a-kind events.

To maximize engagement, our:

– Academic videos simplexify complex ideas to increase the impact of science,
– Interactive sessions allow scholars to discuss and connect over engaging content,
– Exhilarating social events – including virtual wine/beer tastings – offer to all attendees a unique shared experience.

In conversation with you, we will design a tailored online event that help you achieve your scientific goals.
