National Technical Information Service (NTIS) 2018 Data Innovation Day – Addressing National Priorities through Data Insights

From The NTIS Team:
Please join the Commerce Department’s NTIS for 2018 Data Innovation Day!
Participate in a lively discussion of how agencies are tackling national priorities, deriving data insights, and accelerating mission outcomes! See how federal agencies are leveraging NTIS’s joint venture authority to improve operational effectiveness and enhance citizen services. Hear how federal agencies are using evidence-based tools from data collection through analysis and application. Discover a compelling data innovation model that empowers agencies to accelerate their data-driven priorities, while transforming data from being a mere commodity to becoming a fully-realized strategic data asset.

We hope that you’re able to join the conversation involving data science innovation across the federal government!
