RCN-UBE Summit Introduction Talk Christopher R Meyer

This short talk provides some brief history and perspective about networks, RCNs, and the RCN-UBE program. Notes from a report from the 2005 RCN awardees meeting (when the RCN program was similar in size to the current RCN-UBE) were shared in which the participants shared best practices and identified some elements of successful RCNs. Some information about the past and current RCN-UBE portfolio were shared and some representative past awards highlighted. The talk ends with a list of goals that calls for a vision for the future, recommendations for best practices (targeting all stakeholders), continuing networking and communication, and a report summarizing our conversations and ideas.
