Innovation Month 2016 - Disrupt, Develop, Display

Now in its fourth year Innovation Month continues to showcase and discuss innovation in the Australian Pubic Service (APS). Innovation Month 2016 will run from 4-31 July and is about action.  It’s about mobilising the public service to be an exemplar for innovation by becoming 'more innovative in how we deliver services.’ The theme for Innovation Month 2016 is Disrupt • Develop • Display.

How can you get involved?

Innovation Month 2016 is a collective effort, led by public sector agencies and innovation leaders both inside and outside the APS.
