The University Research Forum just completed a series of virtual roundtables focused on the research impact of COVID-19. From these conversations with our partners, we gained a sense of the “top-of-mind” issues for Vice Presidents of Research (VPRs) as they navigate the complexities of research amidst the coronavirus disruption.
How the federal government is responding to research needs during COVID-19—and what institutions can do to help themselves
If you’ve struggled to keep up with what’s happening in Washington, you’re not alone. It didn’t seem possible for the pace of information coming from Congress, the White House, and the agencies to increase, but that’s exactly what has happened.
