Partnerships for Innovation (PFI) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) program that promotes innovation by bringing together colleges and universities, state and local governments, private sector firms, and nonprofit organizations.  These organizations form partnerships that support innovation in their communities by developing the people, tools, and infrastructure needed to connect new scientific discoveries to practical uses.

NSF hosted its second PFI Grantee Workshop in 2010.  The workshop was held at the Westin Arlington Gateway hotel in Arlington, Virginia, a few blocks from the NSF facilities in Ballston.  All active PFI awardees were required to attend, including the PI, one non-academic collaborator, and one student on each award.

May 2, 2010, update:  The final meeting agenda, speaker biographies, and slideshows are posted here.  In addition, a list of active PFI awardees who attended the meeting is available here.
