20 July 2021

The corona era has made scientists think about how they organize conferences. Is flying across the world, away from home for weeks at a time, without many new insights really worth the effort? It can be done differently, Nikhef researchers Niels van Bakel, Auke-Pieter Colijn and Rasa Muller argue in a video for a sustainability workshop at CERN. Spread the word and connect the activities online. In particle physics and beyond.
