Working together, IIT and UIBE aim to provide a safe and accessible way for the Jean Monnet Network on Trade & Investment in Services to come together as a Research Network in Annual Conference format during 2020. The intention is to provide small place-based Conference venues at both IIT, Adelaide and UIBE, Beijing for those able to come together face-to-face.
This will enable some socially distanced local audience interaction and provide place-based audiences with group access to larger communal screens for online presentations. All presenters will have a choice in the manner of presentation: place-based, online or
pre-recorded video.
