In light of the evolving development of the spread of COVID-19, the Chair of U21, Professor David Eastwood, has taken the very difficult decision to cancel the upcoming Researcher Engagement Meeting at University of Connecticut.
The decision was taken on the recommendation of a small U21 advisory group who are monitoring the international public health situation. The group was also kept up to date via representatives at UConn with the recent and rapid changes on campus and in the US. The announcement of a ban on European travellers to the US has accelerated our decision, as well as the growing numbers of travel bans in our member universities.
Research Leaders and Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies who have registered to attend will have received an email regarding further actions.
