Suppose $E/ \mathbb{Q}$ is an elliptic curve whose Mordell-Weil group $E(\mathbb{Q})$ has rank r. When can we realize E as a fiber of an elliptic surface $S\to C$ fibered over some curve, with everything defined over $\mathbb{Q}$, such that the group of $\mathbb{Q}$-rational sections of $S$ has rank at least r?

Edit: Let me also demand that the resulting family is not isotrivial, i.e. the j-invariants of the fibers are not all equal.
