What Is a GSN Account?

On our website, you can explore problem solving networks, identify those of particular interest to you, and connect with network leaders.

Want to store, edit, and track communications with selected networks? These and other benefits come with your free GSN Account.

Today we were honored to host Mark Tiele Westra, the AkvoFLOW product manager who, with GSN research fellow Mike Dover, discussed AkvoFLOW and the new Akvo Caddisfly water monitoring product.

They also discussed the complex challenges of developing a smartphone-based product that is “elegantly simple” for use in the field.

Of special interest for the Global Solution Networks program was the discussion of the ways that these tools can be applied to numerous project problems, and ways in which users can network and collaborate to both improve the tool, and streamline solution development.

The complete webinar is available below.
