Occurring throughout Fall 2021, NWF’s Virtual Webinar Series highlights completed and ongoing research projects. Each session is comprised of several short talks (7-10 minutes each) followed by a discussion, and provides an excellent opportunity for fruitful discussion and cross-project connections.
