What is Lincoln Network?

Lincoln Network believes that the government needs, and the people deserve, new ideas and technologies that increase efficiency, effectiveness, and responsiveness. They bring together leaders from the fields of technology and government to converse, collaborate, and create change.

Why do we think this project is important?

This grant supported Lincoln Network’s Article One Project, which promoted key congressional reform proposals, including bolstering science and technology policy expertise in the legislative branch. Lincoln Network regularly publishes research and engages members of Congress and their staff on related issues.

Lincoln Network provides an expert perspective to Congress, helping the institution restore its ability to craft intelligent policy on a variety of science and technology issues and conduct oversight of the industries driving our modern world. It also brings the innovative spirit of Silicon Valley to the challenges facing the modernization of congressional technology infrastructure, helping create a more productive and responsive legislature.
