CITI initiated a fellows program that features an innovative video seminar series. The participants of this program were a selected membership of high level government and corporate policy makers along with leading academic and nonprofit researchers. THese meetings took place electronically over the CITI 2.0 platform, hosted by WebEx. Speakers presented content that is forward looking: to present new data, raise impending issues, promote discussion among the Fellows and provide feedback to the speakers. We were able to accomodate between 25 an 200 members on each meeting, with meetings scheduled once ecer one or two months.
