The Return on Investment Initiative: Unleashing American Innovation

As part of the President’s Management Agenda, the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) are co-leading the Lab-to-Market cross agency priority (CAP) goal. To carry out these efforts, NIST has launched the Return on Investment (ROI) Initiative at an event in May 2018 titled "Unleashing American Innovation" to streamline and accelerate the transfer of technology from Federal Laboratories and federally-funded R&D at universities. The ROI Initiative seeks input from all stakeholders to unleash American innovation in ways that will maximize the transfer of federal investment in science and technology into value for the Nation by promoting innovation, U.S. economic growth, and national security through the creation of innovative products, processes, services, as well as new businesses and industries.
