March 2016 RPP Forum: Sustaining Partnerships


How do long term partnerships engage in strategic evolution? What are the potential phases and stages that partnerships go through?

The March 2016 Research-Practice Partnerships Forum discusses what it takes to sustain a partnership over time. Panelists from various long-term partnerships articulate the ways they have worked to strategically evolve their work. Check out the video recording here.
