2018 i3/EIR Project Directors Meeting: Partnering to Innovate

The i3/EIR 2018 Project Directors Meeting took place on June 11 and 12 at the Renaissance Hotel in Washington, DC.  2017 was a memorable year for the Office of Education Innovation Programs (EIP) as it successfully launched the successor program to the Investing in Innovation (i3) Fund: the Education Innovation and Research (EIR) program. The 16 inaugural EIR awardees were welcomed with open arms to this year's meeting--the first joint i3 and EIR project directors' meeting. 

This year's theme--Partnering to Innovate--reflects the coming together of these programs. Continuing the tradition of peer support and thoughtful exchange between grantees, this conference provides a platform for education innovators to foster novel approaches, encourage fresh perspectives, and broker new partnerships in service to the millions of students impacted by i3 and EIR investments.
