How is COVID-19 emergency re-shaping our habits? What is changing in our workplaces and around the world?
The IIT community around the globe fires up the engine of their videoconf tools and virtually gather to share impressions and information.

The importance of listening to Science. This is how we start off this fifth conversation with our IIT network during COVID-19 times.

This episode hosts four guest, two IIT Alumni and two IIT collaborators, talking from two distant places, both geographically and in the way they are handling the pandemic.
John Assad, Professor of Neurobiology and Lorella Battelli, Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Harvard Medical School tune in from Boston, US.  From the same city, but from a different university, we connect with Giorgio Bonacchini, Postdoc at Tufts University.

Alberto Scaccabarozzi, Postdoc Fellow at KAUST in Jeddah, tells us about the quick and strict measures taken by the Saudi King, aware that Saudi Arabia would usually attract millions of pilgrims every year, being home to Mecca and Medina.

Marco Monga, IIT HR Director and Sylvia Mondinelli, IIT Alumni Relations Administrator moderate the conversation.

IIT Alumni is the community that stems from the intention of maintaining strong relationships of friendship and collaboration among everyone who has been part of our “big family”.
