CORBEL: Supporting European Research

On May 26, the H2020-funded project CORBEL presented its final webinar titled “Support European Research: Communicating the Value of Life Science RIs in Times of Crisis and Beyond,” this time with guest speaker Bogi Eliasen from the Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS). Prior to the webinar, CIFS ran a Delphi study with the participation of CORBEL partners – BBMRI-ERIC and 12 other life science research infrastructures – for two weeks, facilitating a qualified interaction related to the top challenges, opportunities and priorities of LS RIs. Mr. Eliasen and his team then incorporated the results into the presentation and used it as a basis for discussion of how to communicate the vital work of LS RIs during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

Roughly 50 people participated in the webinar, including from the BBMRI-ERIC headquarters and Nodes, as well as other members of the life science community – from communications staff to scientific staff to directors.

The results of the study will be compiled and distributed to the participants. For more information, please visit the CORBEL project website.
