Registration for the Symposium ‘Crises and the Importance of Research’ Is Now Open

ALLEA is pleased to announce that the registration for the scientific symposium ‘Crises and the Importance of Research: How Prepared Can We Be?’ is now open. The event will take place in London from 22–23 June 2023 and will bring together international experts to explore the contribution of research to various aspects of crises. The symposium is part of the ALLEA General Assembly and hosted by ALLEA’s Member Academies, the British Academy, the Learned Society of Wales, the Royal Society, and the Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Scientists, policymakers, and professionals from across Europe will discuss how public services aid in disaster response; the role of actors across different levels of governance, geographical areas, and economic sectors in preparing for future pandemics; the crucial importance of data in emergencies answers; and, lastly, the role of the European research community in supporting researchers at risk. This symposium delves into critical issues from the spheres of science, society, and policy, and serves as a platform for international, interdisciplinary, and cross-sectoral exchange. Participation is open to all and is free of charge.
