Networking to Enhance Development

NED 2023

May 18 | Seattle, WA

Networking to Enhance Development 2023

In-Person Only | Thursday, May 18

The annual Networking to Enhance Development (NED) Conference is a free professional development mini-conference for and by research coordinators held in Seattle. Participation in NED allows research coordinators to develop contacts, share ideas, and learn from peers.

This year we return to an in-person only conference on Thursday, May 18. We have enjoyed holding NED virtually the past two years and look forward to this in-person opportunity for coordinators and other research staff gather and learn together.

The NED Conference is organized by the Institute of Translational Health Sciences and is a collaboration between the University of Washington, Fred Hutch, and Seattle Children’s.

We have archived previous years’ conference materials at the main NED page.
