This grant supports the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's work in areas of exploration, one of the four buckets of effort outlined in the RWJF's Pioneer Portfolio's Strategic Framework. Healthspottr, an innovation and networking hub, will produce innovation salons in three areas the Pioneer team is interested in exploring. Each salon will include 25 to 30 guests and a reception and dinner. Pioneer staff will determine what each salon will focus on; Healthspottr will take the lead in identifying and inviting participants and will manage the events. Healthspottr will also produce videos from each salon that distill observations and insights, include background material, and identify trends and opportunities for influence. The videos will be posted on RWJF.org and Healthspottr.com. RWJF will assess success by whether the salons help it determine whether an area of exploration merits continued work or whether it should explore elsewhere.
