INN x CSC is a sandbox where public officers can work together to ideate, experiment and inspire one another while learning together.
About INN x CSC
In 2017, we conceptualised INN x CSC as a sandbox for innovation and experimentation, where public officers can come together to collaborate and try out new ideas. Our intent is to encourage you to adopt a ‘Dream big, test early and fail fast’ approach for challenges you may be facing in the public service, and to enable you to quickly iterate and create better, more timely solutions.
Launching in August 2018, INN x CSC occupies 1,400 sq m at the iconic Jurong Town Hall building. It is also a space for you to discover and learn through various learning interventions, such as engaging interactions with subject matter experts and interactive fringe activities.
INN x CSC embodies and aims to foster the following 5 traits in public officers:
No matter who you are or what you do, you are welcome here. This is a safe space where you get to experiment without being judged and where you can candidly share your knowledge and insights to create a cohesive learning community.
In everything that we do, iterating helps us to refine ideas and concepts to obtain better or even optimal results. Through engaging discussions and hands-on activities, you will experience first-hand challenges and satisfaction of iterating.
Learning is a lifelong process. We will ignite the spark in you to continuously learn, and empower you with the freedom to learn anytime, anywhere and at your own pace.
We encourage you to explore unconventional, possibly even wild ideas and inspire you to make innovative yet effective recommendations for a future-ready public service.
We can’t deliver effective policies and services to our citizens if we don’t know what works for them, and what doesn’t. At INN x CSC, you will be plugged into the ground through various hands-on and first-hand learning interventions and projects designed to bring the ‘voice of user’ to the forefront.
