What happened during the Corona crisis? A focus on the differences and similarities between the five Nordic countries.

How did we handle the societal and organizational changes due to Corona? Differences and similarities between countries in terms of how our research-, education- and innovation systems (REAIS) worked in a crisis situation? How did the scientific environments advise the political decision-makers in a crisis situation? The first webinar will focus on our shared learnings from the Corona crisis and how we can use these learnings in the years ahead.
