Building New Partnerships
Dozens of public and private organizations met at a White House-sponsored event on November 12, 2013 to describe their contributions to an inspiring array of collaborations that embrace a common theme: sharing resources and drawing upon sophisticated tools to plumb the depths of huge data sets in order to derive greater value for American consumers and grow the Nation’s economy.
The event, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, was co-sponsored by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Networking and Information Technology R&D (NITRD) program, which represents the information technology portfolios of 18 Federal agencies. It featured scores of new announcements by corporations, educational institutions, professional organizations, and others that—in collaboration with Federal departments and agencies and state and local governments—are answering President Obama’s call for partnerships that can enhance national priorities, including economic growth and job creation, education and health, energy and sustainability, public safety and national security, and global development.
