DyViTo Digital Network Meeting

DyViTo would like to thank all our researchers, beneficiaries and partners who have enthusiastically participated in DyViTo’s first digital consortium meeting. DyViTo would like to recognise the efforts of our excellent researchers, who presented their work brilliantly through video-conferencing. We would like to thank our industry partners for joining us and giving us an insight into the effects of COVID-19. A big thank you to all our supervisors who are looking after their team’s productivity and emotional well-being.

DyViTo Network Meeting – Cancellation

Amidst COVID-19 outbreak, DyViTo has decided to cancel the network wide meeting that was to be held in Cambridge next week. In response to the virus, we are going to do our best to provide digital platforms to ensure our ESRs, supervisors and partners still get the support they need while they endeavour to continue their research. As we all grapple with a remote working environment, we are going to approach our workdays creatively and enthusiastically, taking it one month at a time.

DyViTo would like to thank all our consortium members who are going out of their way to ensure staff safety without compromising research standards. We would like to extend this thanks to all key workers across Europe, and worldwide, who put themselves last in order to put us first.

We will do our best to chronicle and update you on how research will progress during these uncertain times.

DyViTo will follow all advice set-out by the Government in order to protect not just ourselves but the more vulnerable within our communities.

DyViTo Network Meeting – Cambridge

DyViTo is happy to announce that our next consortium wide Network Meeting will be held in Cambridge in March 2020. We look forward to updating you soon.
