On 13 July, BayFOR will be hosting a panel discussion on "International research collaboration in times of crises“. This is the third in a series of six events organised by the Bavarian Academic Forum, BayWISS.

Part three of the series of events entitled "Resilience and responsibilities in times of crisis - the responsibilities of Bavarian universities“ focuses on the organisation of international research partnerships in times of Covid-19: What impact does the pandemic have on ongoing international research projects? What happens if it is no longer possible to conduct local research because border crossings are prohibited? How good is the communication with project partners or political decision-makers, if it is only possible to meet virtually? Prof. Dr. Julia Priess-Buchheit from Coburg University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Dr. Ralf Ludwig from the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich and Mr Jesús Salcedo Villanueva from UN-Habitat in Nairobi, Kenya) will be discussing this.

Commencing with the launch event on 6 July 2020, science and research experts will be discussing topics relating to the responsibilities for universities in society during a pandemic until 30 September 2020. The focus will be on questions such as "Are democratic universities well-positioned?", "Are universities setting the right priorities for research and teaching?", "Are universities clever and diligent in their communications with respect to politics and society?"and "How do we promote the reconciliation of family life and academia?". All events will include video conferences and live streaming.
