A new innovation hub at the Digital Transformation Agency

The federal Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has launched a new co-Lab innovation hub to help accelerate cross-government collaboration and digital innovation.

Based in Sydney, the co-Lab is a dedicated place for teams across government to work on products in partnership with the DTA and private sector specialists.

The co-Lab team is led by DTA digital experts across content design and strategy, service design, user research, accessibility and agile delivery.

The DTA will host 3 types of tailored programs in the space to make sure teams are getting the best outcomes:

  • single day experiences for teams to share and learn from others
  • multi-week experiences for testing solutions or creating proofs-of-concept
  • in-residency experiences for problem-solving initiatives that might span months.

Spaces like co-Lab brings together agencies and align efforts to design better government services for people and businesses.

DTA hopes that the shared environment of co-Lab will create new partnerships, conversations and ways of working.
