The pandemic has affected, and will affect research in many different ways, but how in particular? And which of these changes are transient, and which will change the sector for good?

The mode of the evening will be interactive, introduced by three short impulse presentations and two initial responses from two KNAW members: Prof. Claes de Vreese from the KNAW and Linnet Taylor from the Young Academy, followed by a debate with the (virtual) room.
