Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

How Can Welsh Businesses Move Forward Within the COVID-19 Pandemic?


With non-essential businesses in Wales starting to re-open their doors this week with new hygiene and social distancing guidelines in place, Swansea University’s latest webinar takes a detailed look at how we can safely and effectively move forward with business, research and innovation within the context of the current and evolving COVID-19 landscape.

Using artificial intelligence to understand the psychological & societal impacts of the pandemic, mapping a route to recovery in big data, accessing Wales’ Business Rejuvenation Programme and learning from the journey of other businesses are just a few of the topics that will be covered.

Open to all and free to attend, guests will be offered the opportunity to spend up to 3 minutes introducing themselves, their business’s COVID-19 experience and how they would be interested in collaborating with organisations from across the region.
