Academia took a digital turn in 2020.
Conferences, meetings, and classes moved online due to the pandemic, and there is no way back – also because digital events allow us to save precious time and resources. (Read Nature‘s perspective on virtual conferences here).
Online events are first and foremost better for the planet: no international flights or printed programmes help preserve the environment. For participants, online events imply less travel time, no jet lag, no hassle to hire a taxi at the airport or find the hotel in a new city. For conference organisers, convening virtual meetings imply a lighter logistics, and incomparably lower costs – while drawing larger crowds.
Environmentally friendly and cost-effective, online events also allow scholars from all around the word to connect instantly. There is, however, a missing ingredient in this equation: Physical conferences used to be a lot of fun. Conference dinners and coffee breaks mattered, also because they allowed scholars to connect over meaningful conversations.
At OxCo, we know that informal conversations can develop into ground-breaking collaborations. That’s why we convene exhilarating scientific events, enabling scholars to connect over formal sessions, as well as social and networking activities, designed to enhance online academic life.
