Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic nine months ago, institutions of higher education across the globe have had to contend with challenges that are unparalleled in our recent history.
Until this year, a major focus of our efforts was building bridges between partners through in-person meetings, delegation visits and conferences. Today, however, the travel restrictions imposed because of COVID-19 have hindered our researchers from establishing or maintaining the connections they have made around the world.
As these collaborations remain as vitally important as ever, we will continue to explore online platforms such as this e-newsletter that enable us to stay connected with our peers in the international community. We hope you find the stories in this newsletter inspirational.
