The Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) program pairs top innovators from the private sector, non-profits, and academia with top innovators in government to collaborate during focused 6-12 month “tours of duty” to develop solutions that can save lives, save taxpayer money, and fuel job creation. Each team of innovators is supported by a broader community of interested citizens throughout the country.

The 2nd round of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program will include nine projects – four that are the second phases of Round 1 projects and five new projects.  Second round projects include Disaster Response & Recovery, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Development Innovation Ventures.
