The Network’s annual research conferences provide researchers, stakeholders, and funders an opportunity to learn about findings from projects supported by grants awarded as part of the Hewlett Foundation’s PopPov initiative. At these meetings, researchers share successes and challenges in communicating results to decisionmakers. To encourage engagement with stakeholders, the PopPov Secretariat provides coaching for presentations before high-level panels, training in how to write for nontechnical audiences, and travel support.
