New virtual town halls for researchers: update from Professor Dame Jessica Corner

October 23rd, 2020

As parts of our region prepare to enter tougher Tier 3 restrictions against the pandemic, which are expected to come into force next week, our absolute priority remains your safety and wellbeing.

Our Estates, Health and Safety and operations teams are continually monitoring the situation and the measures we have in place. We are confident that on-campus research and in-person teaching will be able to continue safely, in line with UK Government guidance.

I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to all the amazing colleagues who are supporting progress in the recovery of our research in the face of such ongoing challenges. The current crisis underlines our commitment to research and its power to help transcend complex problems and secure a better future.

I am therefore delighted to announce a further series of online town hall events to help develop our thinking on how our future research strategy and its goals can address such challenges. I do hope you can join me and colleagues from across the University to contribute your views.
