This perennial favorite breakout session is back! This is the best opportunity to meet some of the federal government data experts who champion action in improving public access to information to catalyze innovation. Come learn how to use assets from the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and more. Each agency in the federal government is staffed by experts who are well versed in the information resources available from their division on data.gov (administrative data, survey data, research data, medical/scientific content, etc.) The Datalab will also feature opportunities for one-on-one meet-ups with data experts for “deep dives” into agency’s resources. Participants can join live demonstrations and check out new data resources and tools. The goal of the session is to give innovators and entrepreneurs an overview of new, updated, and emerging datasets that can be used to support new applications and services.
