At the end of March 2020, and then again at the end of April 2020, NewMR conducted studies with insight and research professionals from around the world.
In this webinar, Ray Poynter and Sue York share the main findings from the research.

For example, how are researchers coping?
What do people think the industry leaders should be doing?
And, what are the key drivers of coping well, and less well?
