Partners expressed the desire for continued interactions among partners between in-person meetings. So far, Idea Showcases have given several partners the chance to share ideas and projects they were working on, and to connect with other interested partners after the webinar. Our third Idea Showcase of 2015 is back by popular demand! 

NNIP HQ started with a quick update on network activities, followed by a series of presentations from partners...
