Message from ACUP's President · COVID-19 and catalan public universities

After the agreement between President Torra and the Rectors of the Catalan universities to extend online classes in April and May, the President of the ACUP emphasizes that the Catalan public university system is looking to give a rapid response to adapt to the new situation of university centres, both for students and for teaching and research staff and administrative and service personnel. "The Catalan public universities are working so that our students can finish their academic years in the online modality. We don't rule out the possibility of doing some face-to-face activities later, in June-July, depending on the health emergency situation and in accordance with university autonomy", she points out.

From the ACUP we highlight the contribution to scientific research of the Covid-19 of universities, research centers and hospitals, as well as the voluntary incorporation of university students from the health field to the Catalan Health System.
