The latest webinar in our COVID-19 Response Group series, Universities and the Covid-19 Crisis: Problems, Prospects and Pathways took place on June 11th, 2020.
Immense challenges face universities as a result of Covid-19, including the move to online education, the financial impact of the crisis, and the implications for internationalisation and recruitment. Universities have also made vital contributions in research and provided repositories of much needed expertise. This panel discussion features four university presidents (representing Bristol, St. Andrews, NUI Galway, and Uppsala) who will discuss their response to the pandemic and assessment of its impact in planning for the future.
- Prof. Eva Åkesson (Rector, Uppsala University, Sweden)
- Prof. Hugh Brady (Vice-Chancellor, University of Bristol, UK)
- Prof. Sally Mapstone (Principal and VC, University of St. Andrews, Scotland)
- Prof. Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh (President, National University of Ireland, Galway)
Chair: Prof. Daniel Carey (Director, Moore Institute, NUI Galway)
The session was streamed live on Facebook and on FlirtFM radio.
