With public health restrictions still in place in much of the world, the global Royal Societies have paused their in-person events, but you can still connect with them online.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh has responded to the Scottish Government and the Data Lab’s consultation of the development of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Strategy, while the Royal Irish Academy has moved its exhibition Creative women of Ireland: artists and writers from the archives entirely online.
Back home in Australia – the Royal Society of New South Wales has created their own YouTube channel, with lectures and performances freely available, and have converted many of their meetings to webinars. The Royal Society of Victoria is streaming discussions on their Facebook page, uploading lectures to their website and holding meetings of members remotely. At the same time, the Royal Society of Queensland is crowd sourcing knowledge and calling for papers for Volume 129 of their Annual Proceedings.
