Projects

Presidential Innovation Fellows work on a wide variety of projects during their twelve-month tenure, resulting in multiple opportunities to serve citizens through far reaching or hyper-focused efforts. Projects can be solely focused on supporting agencies, delivering on Presidential priorities, and/or delivering technology that has a cross-agency impact on the federal government.
The program is currently recruiting a Spring 2017 cohort to continue this work. Some of the potential projects include:

  • How might we help reimagine the next generation of the nation’s air traffic control system?
  • How might we create jobs and economic impact by leveraging our federal investments in research and development?
  • How can we help cities move toward smart city technologies?
  • How can we help expand broadband access to families that are currently underserved?
  • How might we help veterans more easily get services and help they need?
  • How can we use innovation to help better offer humanitarian assistance in disasters?
  • How can we radically improve outcomes for children and families in the foster care system?
