Challenges for science and technology in the post-covid period

Erol Gelenbe with a team from the Royal Belgium Academy (ARB) had issued a paper at the end of 2020 concerning the Necessary evolution of Scientific and Technology Communication and Dissemination (large meetings, traveling habits etc…) in a post Covid world ». This paper was sent to all member academies with the objective to setup a group of interested members to work on related issues, starting from this paper. The initial paper has since been published in English in the journal Ubiquity (IF=5) of the Association for Computing Machinery (a 100,000 member organization that selects the Turing Award winners and other prizes in Computer Science), as well as in two academic bulletins in French.

A Euro-CASE working group with additional members from several academies was set up to look at extensions of the work that was started at the ARB, and since then new ideas have also emerged and good progress has been made.

Working Group

Project aim

The Covid-19 crisis has temporarily transformed many of the normal human interactions in science, technology, education, as well as for industry, business and commerce, where most person-to-person communications have moved to the Internet using new forms of online meetings and conferences that had not been fully tested before. This transition has shown us that many of our day-to-day professional interactions, as well as meetings with friends and family, can greatly benefit from ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), but it has also shown some of the limits of these new tools which cannot fully reproduce the useful serendipity of face-to-face encounters. While in recent years great hope was placed in distance learning, the Covid crisis has demonstrated once again the value of direct human interaction in all branches of research and education.

The working group is currently finalising a report including recommendations to be presented by the end of the year.

A Workshop was organised at the Paris Scientific Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences on Friday September 10 to present to Euro-CASE members academies the initial works.
