SciLifeLab is organizing a webinar on October 23 9:00-11:00, to highlight the exciting ongoing research and unique national team science approach in the SciLifeLab-KAW research program on COVID-19, aimed at exploring the major challenge that corona opposes to our society.
Just six months since KAW and SciLifeLab initiated the program, the very fast action and concerted efforts by the Swedish research community have generated several key findings, promoted by a collaborative, open science and data sharing strategy (read more about the SciLifeLab efforts against COVID-19 here). These efforts and achievements will be highlighted at the webinar.
A recording of the event can be found here.
