WUN Webinar on 'Restarting Research During the Pandemic' to be held on 10 September - Register Now

WUN is hosting a series of webinars to help member universities benefit from each other's experience in addressing some of the pandemic-related challenges facing them.  

The third in this series, to be held on 10 September, will discuss the challenge of restarting research during the pandemic.

The webinar will last an hour, during which panelists will share insights about a specific challenge, followed by a broad Q&A. 

Universities around the network have deployed varied approaches to restarting research, reflecting the different geographical and cultural contexts in which they work, and the timing of and extent to which the pandemic has taken hold locally. In this webinar we will explore the different strategies that have emerged from both an institutional and researcher perspective, and in response to challenges presented by different disciplines, looking at both successes and failures.

Our panel of experts will include:

  • Felix Ankomah Asante, Pro Vice-Chancellor Research, Innovation and Development, University of Ghana
  • Walter Dixon, Interim Vice-President Research and Innovation, University of Alberta
  • Sylvia He, Associate Professor, Department of Geography and Resource ManagementThe Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • Arturo Molina, Vice President of Research and Technology Transfer, Tecnológico de Monterrey 
  • Sarah Thompson, Associate Dean of Research, Faculty of Science, University of York
