Americas’ Regional Scientific Webinars on COVID-19

The objective is to provide an opportunity for scientists to discuss their research with international colleagues in a workshop format using the UN Research Roadmap for the COVID-19 Recovery as a framework. In addition, the seminars seek to foster international research collaborations and strengthen interagency networks within the Americas. Regional perspectives to enhance Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) locally and across the region will be a cross-cutting issue.
