Aletta Research meet-up 22 April 2021
On 10 December we organised our first online Aletta Research Meet-up focused on the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic for science. On 22 April 2021 we organise a follow-up event. See the detalis below and register!

Topic: Science & Practice: What are the implications of Covid-19 public health research for practice?

Five experts of different disciplines/societal institutions will reflect on how scientific findings can be used for the development of practical policies tackling the COVID-19 pandemics, but also how practical issues can stimulate research.

We will ask them the question: what facts do we have from research and what would be their implication for practice? This question will be answered from an interdisciplinary perspective in five short presentations and will lead to a panel discussion. The speakers will also be available after the event for informal chats in Gather Town.
