Science Unusual: Gearing Up for the Next Global Crisis

Date: July 12, 2022 Location: Online Event

Science during a crisis should not be “science as usual.” In this recorded panel, you will hear an exchange of perspectives from international speakers exploring the topic of scientific readiness for complex, transnational emergencies. 

In a moderated conversation, panelists discuss examples of how scientists are already preparing for crises. The ISR demonstrates how it is testing new models for preparing researchers and scientific and technological resources in advance.
