NORRAG Covid-19 Response

NORRAG recognises the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on its members and the wider community, which is why we have compiled this expanding list of activities related to Covid-19. Please check back for updates. 

While our own work has certainly been affected, with more of the NORRAG team currently working from home, we hope to bring content relevant to our members’ work and interests which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the home. We have published a range of publications about the Pandemic and how educational institutions are adapting to this change.  

We look to involve members in our work as much as possible, and welcome articles and publications about the issue. In the meantime, we hope that our members stay safe during this time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us without any questions or concerns.
