2020 has been a challenging year for many of us at IGDORE and in the broader academic community; some of us have faced health concerns from COVID either personally or for our friends and relatives, or professional/financial difficulties from the disruption of the academic sector caused by the pandemic. Yet, throughout this, academic projects have continued and we would like to collect some of the positive academic stories from the community here and then share them IGDORE’s December newsletter. If you have achieved something you would like to share (e.g. published a paper, received a grant, got a new position, started a project, etc.) please post a comment about it here. Alternatively, you can send IGDORE an e-mail (please include your name, affiliation, a brief description of your achievement, and [optionally] a link to further information). I will proudly announce achievements from both posts and emails in the next IGDORE newsletter.
Note that this is not limited to IGDORE affiliates, all forum users are welcome to contribute their story. (sign-up here to receive IGDORE’s newsletter if you don’t already get it)
