ERSA Monthly E-news – October 2021
4 November 2021 – Nr 9
Dear Members of ERSA, dear colleagues,
Our recent autumn calendar and the rich upcoming agenda show the strong will of our community to keep on moving forward, exchanging and sharing our research.
Because of uncertainties for traveling or organising big events, flexibility for digital or physical has become a must for those who want to continue to have a productive academic life.
There are many new events in our community … But the ‘new normal’ has also, among other positive things, brought along more REPLAY allowing us to access valuable knowledge off-line. In this edition, you will find Replay of recent events, including our Congress keynotes and round tables.
With best wishes
André Torre
ERSA President
