About the Innovation Skills Accelerator

The New Jersey Innovation Skills Accelerator (InSA) is a free, online program to train public officials to leverage new technology and data to drive innovation in their day-to-day work, and tap into the intelligence and expertise of residents of the Garden State. This program aims to help public entrepreneurs -- those passionate individuals who want to get better at designing public interest projects and taking them from idea to implementation -- work differently.

InSA includes video instruction, interviews with leading public sector innovators from around the world, readings, and self-assessmente. Course content spans an array of subject areas, such as introductions to new technologies like blockchain and big data analytics, utilizing modern methodologies such as user-centered design and open innovation, and employing experimental design approaches. Upon completion of the digital courses, State employees are eligible to attend a live, intensive Innovation Bootcamp to deepen their knowledge of new ways of working in government.
