Here in the Northeastern US, plants are starting to emerge from their winter naps, and the baseball season has officially started, both sure signs that Spring has arrived. And so we’re taking a week to relax and appreciate it.
While we’re away, be sure not to miss The Scholarly Kitchen’s upcoming webinar, “The Future of Research as a Global Enterprise”, moderated by Alice Meadows, and featuring Ana Heredia, Roger Schonfeld, Jennifer Kemp, and Haseeb Irfanullah:
In the post-Cold War era, many observers have conceptualized science as a global activity, with substantial international collaboration, more readily facilitated cross-border scholarly communication, and even UN-level efforts to steer science towards Sustainable Development Goals. But regional differences, geopolitical strains, and challenges to developing a global research infrastructure have all posed challenges to global science. In this webinar, hosted by the Scholarly Kitchen, a panel will consider whether science can ever be truly “global.”
While you’re there, you can also register for the Annual Meeting (early bird rates still good until April 22), and if you’re going, be sure to grab a hotel room while they last. The American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting is in Chicago around the same time, so rooms may become increasingly difficult to secure. And if you haven’t yet voted, the SSP Board of Directors Election remains open.
