Check out the agenda for MERL Tech DC!

MERL Tech DC is coming up quickly!

This year we’ll have two pre-workshops on September 5th: What Can Blockchain Offer MERL? (hosted by Chemonics) and Big Data and Evaluation (hosted by the World Bank).

On September 6-7, 2018, we’ll have our regular two days of lightning talks, break-out sessions, panels, Fail Fest, demo tables, and networking with folks from diverse sectors who all coincide at the intersection of MERL and Tech!

Registration is open – and we normally sell out, so get your tickets now while there is still space!

Take a peek at the agenda – we’re excited about it — and we hope you’ll join us!
