RedIRIS, the Spanish academic and research network, encourages all affiliated institutions to share their experiences and the challenges they are facing these days due to the urgency with which they are having to implement a remote work system. Together with the TECNIRIS community, they have organized a series of live video sessions where all affiliated institutions may participate, including universities, public administrations and public research centers.
The objective of these online meetings is to analyze the way in which the sudden and massive adoption of telecommuting, online teaching and collaborative tools is impacting organizations. As it is explained on the RedIRIS website, they’d like to “take advantage of this situation to join forces and share experiences of how we are facing this exceptional situation”. A scenario that will undoubtedly test the continuity of ICT services.
From RedIRIS they consider that it will be very useful for the entire Community that the different organizations share how they have planned the implementation of remote work, their experiences, their issues and the resources and services that they have made available to users: connectivity, security, tools, support, costs...
All those interested in participating can send their proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org until next Thursday, March 26. Once received, the video session “Experiences on teleworking in the coronavirus crisis” agenda will be configured. It will be open to anyone who’d like to attend. They will be held during the week of April 6 and will last a maximum of 2 hours per day, with interventions of around 10 - 20 minutes. Attendees will be able to ask questions to the speakers.
