Join us for a webinar on ‘Big data and innovative ways of data generation for research’ in the first webinar of 'Coffee with Latin America' series.
The webinar will provide a starting point for online conversations on the importance of big data and innovative ways to generate data for research. The current pandemic too has highlighted the need for researchers to find ground-breaking and innovative ways that generate data irrespective of which country one is from.

Panellists will share perspectives across different regions, help identify unique challenges and solutions for discussion.
