We are happy to welcome the new projects to CAS this autumn, although activities will be restricted due to the ongoing pandemic. We have taken steps to ensure that the Centre is a safe place for our researchers and administration, and we have facilitated digital participation for those who cannot be there physically. As the pandemic caused the Centre to shut down during the spring semester, CAS has extended the timeframe for the 2019/2020 projects. That is why CAS is currently having six active projects on its hands, although only the 2020/2021 projects will be present at the Centre.

Why do Indigenous people have high risk of severe influenza?
