Census to host Open Innovation for All virtual summit

Posted by Luke Fretwell · November 26, 2021

The U.S. Census Bureau and Census Open Innovation Labs will host The Opportunity Project Summit: Open Innovation for All December 13-15. The event is virtual and free to all.

From TOP:

Much of the Summit will showcase the work of hundreds of participants in this year’s The Opportunity Project (TOP) sprints. TOP is a leading federal innovation model that brings cross-sector partners together to solve problems for people nationwide, using federal open data.

This year, 7 federal agencies (the U.S. Census Bureau, HHS, NOAA, MBDA, Treasury, CFPB, and HUD) and 2 cities (New York and Coral Gables, FL) led TOP sprints focused on the World Post-COVID-19. We’ll feature the resulting new products and announce more than $300,000 in awards to the winners of the Open Data for Good Grand Challenge.

Talks include:

  • Data Tools Helping to Illuminate New Economic Patterns
  • TED-Style Talks: Data Art and Non-traditional Tech Education
  • A Data- and Human-Centered Conversation on Addressing Homelessness
  • “Equidad e inclusividad”: Technology to Support Language Access and Minority Inclusion
  • TED-Style Talks: Technology and Justice, the New Economy and the American Dream
  • What Is Data Equity? A Plain-language Discussion
  • Let’s Get “Climate Smart”: How Tech Can Boost Community Resilience to Climate Change
  • Government Tech Funding 101
