Innovate & INTOPS


Brownie Leader and Ranger Assistant
I was wondering if anyone knows when Innovate and INTOPS are likely to be next year?

I am trying to plan my QG (I never did it properly when I started and am now being chased up by the new QG advisor).

I know INTOPS was in September this year, but I wasn't sure if that was when it always was.

I have been to a few Innovates, but they seem to change when they are. Didn't know if anyone has got any inside knowledge as to even which month it is in.

INNOVATE has historically been every 8 months, so the next one should be April/May but that may have changed...

INTOPS is nearly always Sep.

The format etc of Innovate was (and possibly still is) being reviewed, so may nolonger be sticking to the old patterns. The most recent Innovate was about a month ago though.

IntOps is usually September (it can't move much because of the timescale of preparing / debriefing the related projects & trips, eg GOLD).
The applications open around April/May.
