GRC COVID-19 VIRTUAL REGIONAL SEMINAR SERIES

In the absence of the regular GRC Annual and Regional Meetings that were due to take place in 2020, a virtual series of regional seminars was developed for GRC participants to discuss the COVID-19 crisis, as well as provide an opportunity for regional connectivity between GRC participants.

The Regional Seminars, from November 2020 to February 2021, discussed the COVID-19 crisis, with a particular focus on exploring priority research areas and questions most suited for international collaboration, as well as the impact of the crisis on the GRC participant organisations and the wider research ecosystem.

As well as facilitating discussions on these topics, the seminar series also included a number of more regular items of GRC business, notably the launch of the 2020 Statement of Principles on public engagement and mission-oriented research.
