UNCOVER Online Conference 2022
UNCOVER's annual conference will take place from 7 - 9 November 2022, with the theme "Learning from Covid, Looking to the Future". Join us for two days of online conference sessions, panel discussions and inspiring keynotes, together with the launch of a new systematic review masterclass.
We are delighted to welcome you to the third annual UNCOVER conference, which took place online on Tuesday 8 November (14:00-17:00 UK time) and Wednesday 9 November (09:30-12:30 UK time).
This year's conference will explore what we have learned from the past two and a half years of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how those lessons can help us to prepare more effectively for the challenges of the future. Each of the conference days will focus on an important theme - Day 1 on Infectious Diseases and Pandemic Preparedness, and Day 2 on Emerging Health Challenges: Climate Change, Loss of Biodiversity and Disease Emergence.
