An arm of the Defense Innovation Unit wants to streamline how it finds hidden problems buried in emerging crises, and is looking for a consortium management firm to administer the new effort. DIU’s National Security Innovation Network, focused on the human capital that turns new ideas into reality, is preparing to launch a new consortium: the Institute for Nascent Innovation, or I4NI. The new outfit will aim to bring “together diverse communities of universities, small businesses, entrepreneurs and inventors that can collaborate on prototyping projects, functioning as a strategic responsive cell,” according to notice released Friday. NOTICE
