On May 20, 2013, 20 “experts”were invited to the White House Lab-to-Market Inter-Agency Summit in Washington, D.C., organized by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and the National Institutes of Health’s Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. The goal was to have national experts outside of the federal agency system recommend ways to increase the return-on-investment for the $140 billion expenditures on federally-funded research and development. Tom Kalil, Deputy Director for Technology and Innovation, OSTP and Todd Park U.S. Chief Technology Officer, challenged panelists to offer inspirational and transformational, not incremental, ideas.
