Innovation Activities


Find out about learning innovations through iN.LAB programmes which are designed to empower training and adult education professionals to take learning beyond traditional face-to-face classroom delivery, and maximise the application of learning back in the actual workplace.


Innov-Series Events


iN.LAB runs the Innov-Series to bring different stakeholders to Explore, Collaborate and Innovate. The series comprises two signature initiatives - InnovPLUS, InnovJAM, InnovLOGUE and InnovBITE.


The InnovPLUS Grant is a competitive learning innovation grant challenge which awards a prototyping grant of up to $200,000 to winning organisations to develop an innovative, feasible and scalable prototype that advances CET practice and outcomes. The InnovPLUS is organised by iN.LAB of the Institute for Adult Learning (IAL), and is run twice a year.
This year July, InnovPLUS 2020-JUNE will be another opportunity to join the ranks of the 19 enterprises that have won the coveted InnovPlus Grant.
