About Cloud Innovation Center

The Cloud Innovation Centers (CIC) Program provides an opportunity for nonprofits, education institutions, and government agencies to collaborate with other public sector organizations on their most pressing challenges, test new ideas with Amazon’s innovation process, and access the technology expertise of AWS.

Any nonprofit, education, or government organization can apply to work on a challenge with our global network of public sector-led innovation centers. Organizations bring their expertise and work through a challenge engagement, uncover new ways to solve complex problems, and publish their lessons learned to further drive public sector innovation.
