Making TOP Work for You: TOPx Toolkit for Federal Agencies


Sara Brenner
U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Associate Director for Medical Affairs

Dr. Brenner serves in the Office of In Vitro Diagnostics in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health as a principal advisor to the Office Director, Center Director, and other key officials on regulatory premarket and post-market compliance and surveillance issues, with influence on Center and Agency level decisions, policy development nationwide, program execution, and progression of short and long range program goals and objectives. She provides leadership and scientific direction to a multidisciplinary medical, scientific, and professional staff engaged in developing and implementing standards for the safety and effectiveness of medical devices marketed and used throughout the United States.


The Opportunity Project is for everyone - and this year we’re opening our playbook to ensure any federal, state, local or tribal government can adopt the model to catalyze innovative tech and put open data to work.  Join one of two hands-on sessions to learn how you can adapt TOP for your own goals, and receive guidance and feedback from The Opportunity Project team.

Thinking about how your agency can address mission critical challenges by engaging the private and social sectors? Not sure how to engage the public to utilize your open data resources?  After 5 years of TOP, we’re opening up our playbook through TOPx, an adaptable toolkit that enables federal agencies to facilitate their own virtual technology development sprints. Join us to get an inside look at the toolkit and learn about using the TOP model to transform federal open data into digital tools aligned with key national challenges and agencies mission. Then brainstorm with our team and peers on how you can make this work at your own agency.
