Creating a more innovative state for the people of New Jersey
We create innovative policies and technologies that address complex public problems.See Our Work
“A stronger New Jersey will be built on the back of innovation.”
The Office of Innovation works collaboratively with government, academic, non-profit, and private sector institutions to drive innovation in the Garden State and improve the design and delivery of policies and services to the state's residents, businesses, and institutions.
What We Do
We collaborate with State departments and agencies to develop better products, policies, and services for New Jerseyans using human-centered, data-driven, and agile practices.
Through the Innovation Skills Accelerator, we 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 New Jerseyans.
As part of the SmarterNJ initiative, we work with State departments and agencies to leverage new and innovative technology that allows the public to meaningfully contribute to the policymaking process.
We employ expertise in data, design, open governance, and open innovation to provide the Governor's Office and State partners with an array of innovation advisory services to strengthen project, policy, and legislative outcomes.
