NNIP Idea Showcase & Network Update, June 2016

June 9, 2016 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Maxwell Austensen
Mingming Zhang
Anthony Galvan
Bob Gradeck

In 2014, we began holding virtual idea showcases after partners expressed the desire for more NNIP conversations between in-person meetings. Thanks to Idea Showcases, partners have shared their work and found new opportunities for collaboration with fellow NNIPers. Our second Idea Showcase of 2016 came back by popular demand!

NNIP HQ started with a quick update on network activities including details about upcoming conferences and overall NNIP goals. For technical reasons, the beginning of the NNIP update has not been included in the recording below. Then, each presenter had 5 to 8 minutes to talk about potential, current, or completed work.
