The first joint webinar, in partnership with the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, will be held on May 19 to share our experiences and research efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the academic exchanges, we wish to better understand the implications and impact of COVID-19 and to help make sense of how a post Covid-19 world might be shaped to be more inclusive with global collaborations.
