Sponsored by the OUSD (R&E) Defense Laboratories Office, Elevate is a year-long training series designed by Fed Tech to grow the capability of DoD lab personnel to interact with industry, non-traditional partners and the venture community. The goal of the training series is to strengthen the connection between DoD labs and partners in order to more effectively transition technologies to the warfighter and commercial markets.

Elevate will kickoff on Tuesday, January 15th in Washington, D.C. This session will feature a day-long training on how to create an "innovation greenhouse" around your lab and will feature world renowned innovation and creativity expert Dr. Oliver Schlake. Dr. Schlake teaches at the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business and has consulted across government, industry and the venture world--helping dozens of organizations innovate more effectively.
