This workshop will take an in-depth look at the challenges faced by research systems and the practical solutions and infrastructure necessary to manage through short and extended emergencies. The focus of the course will be tools you need in your “research emergency kit” to effectively lead and operate during the disruptions of a national emergency, and instruction will include discussion, didactic, and case study elements to provide strategies and share operational best practices. Panelists from different professional backgrounds will share their experience and expertise. This session will be hosted in Zoom and attendees are encouraged use the video and audio features to actively participate in the dialogue.
