Successful Hybrid WASCAL Symposium

Successful Hybrid WASCAL Symposium

written by Mirjana Bevanda

October 1, 2021

We are very happy that the WASCAL symposium for Research and Capacity Building went very well. Our staff members who organized it managed to have a great hybrid symposium with valuable talks covering all aspects of WASCAL  while complying to the Covid-regulations.

We are very honoured that Dr. Karsten Hess (BMBF), Prof. Mouhamadou Hassirou (Chair of the Governing Board of WASCAL) and all directors of the WASCAL graduate program as well as Prof. em. Vlek joined the symposium (in-person or virtually) and many contacts were renewed and more new contacts and collaborations were established.

We are very much looking forward to the next symposium, maybe then without any limits on the number of in-person participants.
