COVID19 and the impact on ALIGN

In the UK, we have just heard that we are going into lockdown because of the COVID19 pandemic, as are our partners across the globe.

Our attentions on the project have turned to how we are going to keep momentum. Appreciate Inquiry events had been planned on campus, and have either had to be cancelled or postponed. All partners were also all due to come together for a second meeting in Viet Nam, which is now looking unlikely.

Having discussed the issues with our co-leads at Philippine Normal University, we have agreed that some activities can continue, whilst others will be impacted. As a result, we have put in a formal request to the funder for a no cost extension, and are currently busy updating our project schedules.
