UWC Research Week 2021 Schedule
DVC: Research & Innovation office invites you to the UWC's Annual Research Week which takes place from 28 September to 1 October.

The theme of Research Week 2021 is, ‘The UWC Contribution to Fighting and Understanding the COVID-19 Pandemic’.

This moment in our history allows universities to make research count like never before. As we come to the end of our second year of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we realise that the only constant changes. 

The pandemic has forced us to evaluate and reconsider almost every aspect of our lives. Before the crisis, research at UWC contributed to ensuring that healthcare for all used an interdisciplinary approach to the challenge of food insecurity, to name but one of a few issues. As we continue to address the SDGs and respond to the challenges of COVID-19, we invite you to come and share ideas on how we can continue to make a difference in our communities.
