The Royal Australian Navy will hold its next Navy Warfare Innovation Workshop (NWIW) on December 7 – December 10. Expressions of Interest (EoIs) to participate as both an innovator and a facilitator close 28 November.
The Head of Navy Capability (HNC) will open and close the event, which will focus on what the Navy needs to do now to fight and win at sea in the year 2030. He will also judge the outcomes open and close / judge the event on Day 3 together with the Chief Defence Scientist.
In his recent Commander’s Intent (update 2020), the Chief of Navy said, “Australians are called to be part of something bigger, to see in our Navy the attributes of a unique, representative, an inclusive organisation worthy of their commitment and service.”
It is in that spirit that Navy asks Industry, Academia, Science, Technologists, Start-ups and the wider Defence Innovation ecosystem to join their personnel for 3 days to co-design proposals in response to a potential future 2030 scenario.
The NWIW is one of the key mechanisms by which Navy actualises CN’s Navy Industry Engagement Strategy and the deep transformational relationships that it calls for beyond simply acknowledging Industry as a FIC.
This year the NWIW will be a hybrid event – it will be held in person at multiple locations as well as virtually.
