At a St. Louis unconference session, partners expressed the desire for more interactions among partners between in-person meetings.  As part of the motivation, the group suggested that sharing potential projects or early work would open more opportunities for active collaboration in addition to the more common after-the-fact sharing.

To promote this, we hosted our first virtual idea showcase!

NNIP/UI started with a quick update on news from NNIP-central, and there was a series of presentations from partners.
