Friends of Prolinnova

After discussions in an Open-Space session at the Prolinnova International Partners Workshop (IPW) in June 2015, partners agreed to invite “Friends of Prolinnova” to support the network in improving multistakeholder partnerships, strategy development, fundraising and public relations.

This group complements and reinforces the guidance given by the Prolinnova Oversight Group (POG) to the network, without having the responsibilities of supervision and arbitration held by the POG. The Friends of Prolinnova comprise people who have, in recent years, made outstanding contributions to the network in terms of collaboration and/or advisory support and who would like to continue to add value through their particular skills and linkages. The POG has the responsibility to invite individuals to join the Friends of Prolinnova.
