Building a sustainable and supportive network for public service innovators has been a key objective of the Infuse programme. The importance of being able to reach out to and collaborate with like-minded individuals can be imperative when delivering innovation in the public sector.

“The aim of the Infuse Alumni is to build a supportive innovation network with a diverse range of perspectives and experiences. It is about bringing sharp minds together in one space to look at the future, to look at what could be, and how we get there.”

Owen Wilce

Infuse Programme Manager
