PowerPoint presentation (PDF file: 813 KB)

McKnight Foundation invited Ann Waters-Bayer from the Prolinnova IST to join as a resource person in their Leadership Meeting for the Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP). The meeting (30 July - 1 August 2012 in Minneapolis) was designed to share diverse approaches to social innovation that can support technical innovation. One example was the LISF piloted by Prolinnova partners in 8 countries in Africa and Asia. Ann gave a presentation on “Linking technical and social innovation in Prolinnova”, which stimulated interest of some McKnight Foundation research leaders to seek closer linkages with members of the Prolinnova community of practice.
