Navy Warfare Innovation Workshop 2020 – Registration open until 28 November
December 8 - December 10
The purpose of the workshop is to bring Navy War Fighters working at the coal face together with Academia, Industry and DST(G) to discuss Navy’s War Fighting challenges and ideate potential future solutions to improve Navy capability. These insights will provide non Navy participants an opportunity to shape their focus and existing innovation investments towards solving problems and opportunities relating to Navy. Navy in turn seeks to gain insights and potential solutions to these problems and opportunities from its new partners.
Apply human-centred design, start-up inspired innovation tools with emerging technologies to develop concepts to counter threats in a proposed scenario.
Broader objectives of the NWIW include:
provide an environment that encourages “those Australians who are looking to be part of something bigger, to see in our Navy the attributes of a unique, representative and inclusive organisation worthy of their commitment and service” – CN Commander’s Intent 2020
provide Navy people and collaborators with the opportunity to investigate the art of the possible. To say ‘wouldn’t it be good if Navy could ( Insert whacky idea) .. to develop innovative concepts to fight and win at sea;
enhancing Next Generation Navy’s innovation culture and uplift of skills by providing high performance and diverse innovation teaming experiences
empower Navy as a learning organisation that encourage continuous improvement and innovation for an edge at all levels, as normal behaviour.
strengthen transformational relationships and collaboration called for by the Navy Industry Engagement Strategy – across and beyond Navy;
leverage expertise within industry and academia for positive disruption;
provide DST(G), industry and academia insight into Navy war fighting priorities and constraints from a ‘user perspective’ so that their own innovation programs might focus on solving Navy issues; and
- enable greater appreciation for technical and operational viewpoints.
