- 1–1.5-hour monthly meetings (Expert researchers in the field to give 20-minute talks, with the objective of speakers from different continents in each session).
- 2-3 speakers per webinar topic area (It will maximise discussion times to promote international collaboration).
- 08.00 PDT; 11.00 EDT; 16.00 IST/BST on the final Thursday of each month (Allows for morning participation by U.S. parties, late afternoon/early evening across Europe and late evening/pre-midnight for Asia).
- The Webinar series will be hosted by Cornell University via the ZOOM platform (Easily accessible online via a range of web browsers). These sessions will not be recorded but can be repeated for specific audiences on request.
