The Opportunity Project Summit


The Opportunity Project Summit: Open Innovation for All

A Virtual Event

Hosted by Census Open Innovation Labs at the U.S. Census Bureau

The U.S. Census Bureau and partners are thrilled to invite you to The Opportunity Project Summit, a second annual virtual innovation conference showcasing technology built with open data, and creating space for conversations on government innovation, effective collaboration, the power of open data, and including all voices.

Open innovation is for everyone, so we invite leaders and learners representing all backgrounds and expertise to join us for three days of interactive, inclusive and enlightening sessions.

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.

We hope you’ll join us virtually for as many of the sessions as you can, and share your ideas with the community.
