About the event
On Thursday, September 24, at 12:00 PM, the uOttawa Institute for Science, Society and Policy hosted a diverse group of ISSP members from Canada and the United States to tackle COVID-19 issues.
COVID-19 has made 2020 a year of rapid, tumultuous change. Whether it’s shifting political and social norms, economic collapse, the hunt for a vaccine, or the unintended impacts of lockdowns, COVID-19 will continue to transform the great scientific, societal, and policy priorities of our time. But how will these challenges evolve into 2021 and beyond? Which changes will prove fleeting, which could become permanent, and what changes have yet to materialize?
