Because of Corona, all iNEXT-Discovery "live" events are postponed until further notice until spring 2021.

The physical first annual consortium meeting and three workshops have now been cancelled and are being transformed into virtual events. The budget we will save from these will be used to:

  • provide reagents for Covid-19 research to our users (a call will be initiated soon)
  • produce a special edition of the JoVE journal about iNEXT-Discovery that will illustrate some of our procedures for (remote) data collection.
  • purchase a licence that will allow training webinars to be broadcasted to the user community.

All regional meetings and "unique" workshops that were planned for the first 12 months, and some events that were planned for the first 18 months, are postponed to be concluded by month 24. At the moment, we have not decided to specifically virtualize any other meetings and workshops, but we will likely organize new specific virtual events for specific subjects.
