Participation in the breakout sessions helped to identify challenges in research and innovation faced by universities and their governance, in particular those related to new technologies, to find sustainable solutions and promote mutual learning on issues in this area, and to explore the role of research ethics committees (RECs) from the perspective of university governance.
The roundtable was an effective platform for discussing opportunities for holding trainings to develop and implement relevant practices in universities.
