Bringing in new talent to solve hard, national security challenges.

The Talent Portfolio provides inspiration and opportunity for individuals outside the traditional federal talent pipeline to serve our country and solve real-world national security, technology, and policy challenges. By bridging the gap between students, academics, and entrepreneurs to engage with the Department of Defense (DoD), NSIN is helping build a deep bench of diverse, qualified civilian and military workers to preserve our competitive emerging technology advantage with resilient personnel trained for the unpredictable global operating environment.

People are the most valuable resource to achieving the mission.
