On April 28th 2020, the Scientific Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization, Professor Dan Grigorescu, took part in an online conference on the theme of “Tackling the impact of the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic on higher education in the Black Sea region”, organized by Professor Eden Mamut, Secretary-General of the Black Sea Universities Network.
The Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization and the Black Sea Universities Network are developing an educational partnership for a project titled “What will the world look like after the pandemic?”
The project proposed by the Institute will be launched shortly and shall provide a platform for ideas, solutions and recommendations on how the world will be rebuilt in the aftermath of the pandemic, focusing on key fields such as education, health, science and technology, economics, administration, human rights and leadership.
At present, the Institute’s confirmed partners in the “What will the world look like after the pandemic?” project are the World Academy of Art and Science, the Berlin Academy of Cultural Diplomacy, the Nizami Ganjavi International Centre, the Marmara Group Foundation, Global Round Table, the Human Rights Foundation, and the Black Sea Universities Network.
The global nature of the SARS-CoV-2 crisis requires the establishment of durable and sustainable measures for universal prevention and response, through the involvement of the entire international community.
