Thank you to everyone who joined the Virtual Latin America Universities Summit. We were honoured to host delegates from over 80 countries to examine how research universities can respond to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic and rebuild the higher education sector within Latin America.

We’re working hard to prepare the recordings from the event and will make them available via our virtual events platform within 24 hours.
