Innovation Month 2018

Innovation Month continues into its seventh year in 2018, showcasing and promoting discussion around innovation across the Australian Public Service (APS). Innovation Month runs from 2-31 July under the theme 'Working Together'.

What is Innovation Month?

Innovation Month is an annual showcase of public sector innovation, its achievements and challenges. The objective of Innovation Month is to provide everyone in the public sector with the opportunity to share about their experience innovating, or explore new ideas to improve their work practices.It is a collective effort led by public sector agencies and innovation leaders both inside and outside the APS. Although innovation is all year round, Innovation Month provides an opportunity to focus on what's happening across the public sector and have an open conversation about how the public sector innovation journey is progressing.
