About The Discussion:
The importance of innovation in government has become a bi-partisan consensus. Connecting government officials and their departments with top talent from the US technology sector has become paramount to keep track with the rapid pace of private sector developments. Most recently, congress sought to solidify already existing programs such as the Presidential Innovation Fellowship, with the TALENT Act of 2017 seeking to codify the provisions that established it.
But beyond solidifying the policies of previous administrations, what is the future of technological innovation in government? Will we be seeing more and deeper ties with the private sector or a more government driven approach? Join us at our Panel “Innovation.gov: The Future of Better, Faster, Cheaper Government” at State of the Net 2017
