There are three types of A-Lab events and working sessions:

  • Ideate events are used to generate new ideas for projects that address systemic change
  • Incubate working sessions provide a structured, focused space for teams to develop project ideas with support from industry experts
  • Accelerate workshops are collaborative, facilitated processes intended to support the co-design of large, multi-stakeholder ARENA funding programs
