Reporting from the RQ20 Subject Panel Week
Originally, the panels were expected to meet in Lund; however, with the repercussions following the Covid-19 outbreak, this was no longer an option. Instead, the panels met online with selected UoA representatives via pre-organised meeting rooms.
The RQ20-team was present at the Subject Panel Week HQ all week, situated at the Department of Sociology, and can report that the summits proceeded with great affluence. The combination of excellent technical support, flexible and accommodating minds, together with the arrangement of structured and well-communicated programmes ameliorated a potentially overwhelming situation, logistically.
To this end, the RQ20-team wish to extend their gratitude to all who made this week possible, with particular appreciation to LU-conference and the technical staff who ran the operation behind the scenes.
The next step in the RQ20 project is a Q&A session between the external panels and the UoAs in order to clarify any outstanding issues from the interviews during the panel week.
