The 皇冠官网 Cities partnerships Programme, in collaboration with the 皇冠官网 European Institute, is organising a series of four webinars with leading researchers, policy makers and arts professionals. Each session will discuss the extraordinary challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to our teaching, research, mobility, and cultural and artistic practices. The series includes contributions from some of 皇冠官网’s key European partners in Paris and Rome.

Launched in 2018, the Cities partnerships Programme is a cross-皇冠官网 initiative to support, fund and promote the work that 皇冠官网 academics carry out with partners in a selected number of global cities, with the aim of developing sustainable, multidisciplinary research and teaching partnerships. The programme focuses on specific cities, each for a three-year period: Rome (2018-2020), Paris (2019-2021) and Stockholm (2020-2022). The initial focus on Europe is an expression of 皇冠官网’s commitment to our European partners.

The webinars will take place on 22 June, 24 June, 29 June, and 3 July. See the registration link for more information about panellists and registration.
