Third edition of Next Generation by Design (NGBD) Symposium by DXtera Institute

For three years now the DXtera Institute, of which the UOC has been a member since 2017, has organized its Next Generation By Design (NGBD) Symposium. But this year’s event will be a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic – it will be online! The format of the event will be a total of four webinars given every Tuesday between 12 May and 2 June. Each one will focus on a separate theme: comparative taxonomy management, next generation education systems, exploring new frontiers and enabling smart demand. 

All webinars in the series will be held at 9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time / 15:00 Central European Summer Time.
