On September 28 the White House Open Data Innovation Summit will highlight the Obama Administration’s work in opening U.S. government data and to discuss the path forward to continue this progress. This event is co-hosted by White House, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the General Services Administration, and the Data Foundation and will feature cutting-edge uses of government open data to promote government efficiency and effectiveness, drive innovation, economic opportunity, and improve the health and welfare of the American public.

During this free and open Summit we will hear from people on the front lines who are championing data-driven innovations. The Summit will explore the following questions:

  1. Efficiency and effectiveness: How has open data made the government more efficient and effective?
  2. Health and wellness: How has open data made us live better lives?
  3. Innovation, job growth and economic opportunity: How has open data spurred innovative thinking, job growth and economic opportunity?

The Open Data Innovation Summit will bring together government trailblazers, entrepreneurs, companies, advocates, and civic innovators who are using Federal open data across all sectors. Innovations in open data will be featured in keynote presentations, lightning talks, and panels on the Main Stage and an exhibition hall in the Solutions Showcase.

The main stage of the Summit will be livestreamed worldwide–Join us!


The White House Open Data Innovation Summit will be held at the Washington Convention Center, concurrent with the Data Foundation’s fourth annual open data policy conference, Data Transparency 2016. Alongside the Summit, Data Transparency 2016 will include additional tracks focusing on the benefits of open data in government finance and in regulation.
