In spring 2010, the Case Foundation together with the White House Domestic Policy Council and the White House Office on Science and Technology Policy teamed up to host a daylong public-private strategy session focused on promoting innovation through the use of prizes, challenges and open grantmaking. The conference was an extension of President Obama’s Open Government Directive and the Case Foundation’s continued efforts to encourage citizen involvement in the decisions and policies that affect their lives. The result was a gathering of over 200 innovators from more than 35 government agencies and 35 private and nonprofit sector expert organizations.

This report is a summary of the lessons and shared learning which was discussed at the conference, and highlights some of the shining examples of the power and pitfalls of crowdsourcing ideas and innovation..
