The Adaptive City
The Adaptive City is a series of six collaborative workshops sponsored by the ACT Government and delivered by the Canberra Innovation Network with different partners. The main theme of all the workshops is innovation driven collaboration of key city stakeholders to position recovery and growth as we emerge from the pandemic as a city, economy and society.
We share intelligence, experiences, views and we work together to create a shared vision for new realities across sectors of our economy and society, inspiring collective collaborative activities that leverage our strengths, innovation and ingenuity to position our city for a better and re-imagined future.
Collaborative Innovation Lab
The Collaborative Innovation Lab is a program that brings people together to work on problems in ways that create economic and innovation opportunities for Canberra entrepreneurs and innovators across business, academia, government and social enterprise.
Facilitated sessions address a challenge, problem or an opportunity through collaboration that activates and leverages the resources, strengths and capabilities of a diverse group of players from across the ecosystem. This event can take different forms, sizes and durations including short focused sessions, half-day mini-hacks and full industry innovation days.
Innovation Bootcamps are a great way to introduce the lean startup methods to anyone who intends to innovate. The workshops are highly interactive and practical with a focus on entrepreneurial thinking, collaborative culture and Innovation tools. They are led by experienced entrepreneurs and encourage participants to work with case studies to allow them to safely fail and demonstrate the power of the lean methods as it applies to their own entrepreneurial or intrapreneurial projects.
Great for SMEs with ambition to introduce innovation projects, and Corporate/Government intrapreneurs looking to disrupt, challenge and rapidly improve the old way of doing things.
Hackathons bring together a community of hustlers, hipsters and hackers to solve local, national and global challenges innovatively either through tech, policy or process.
Join or create your own team and participate in a competitive environment over 24-48 hours and come up with a new solution that can help make an impact and potentially save lives. Hackathons are not just for coders, the more diverse your team is the more innovative your solution will be.
Hackathons are great activations for conferences and other major events where stakeholders and users are already present.
