The SIMUSAFE Consortium was scheduled to meet up in Coventry, UK last month. Three weeks before we were all scheduled to meet. Coventry and ITCL met online and decided to transfer the meeting to an online format for the health and safety of all the partners.
More than 40 team members spent two days online with each other discussing the project, sharing our progress, and brainstorming. We recognized the upheaval the coronavirus is causing to everyone as well as to our data collection. Part of the meeting was spent working through how we can work to support the project and each other while staying healthy and safe. It’s an ongoing exploration and will be through the course of this pandemic and after.
