To reach these objectives, ANR invests on two strategic approaches: an event offering which leverages multiple formats, and an effort to facilitate networking during events.
A LARGE OFFER OF EVENTS SETUPS AND FORMATS
ANR offers many different set ups and formats of events.
Two examples :
- ANR Tour
- One-day-long online conferences
The ANR Tour is a series of 30 webinars, that enable all ANR departments to meet their audiences. Since 2020, the ANR Tour has taken place entirely online.
In 2021, with inwink, the ANR Tour gathered over 2.500 registrants.
The 2022 ANR Tour will also be organized with inwink, with a similar approach:
On the other hand, the one-day-long conferences, takin place exclusively online since March 2021, cover specific topics that vary from one edition to the next.
A few examples:
These conferences can be played out into two languages. In this case, inwink helps the organizers create in just a few clicks, a multi-language version of the event website.
ENCOURAGE NETWORKING AND INTERACTIVITY DURING THE EVENTS
All ANR events, whatever the format, share one common feature: they all take place live, so that interactions can be maximized during the sessions.
During live sessions, the chat box is a place where discussions occur, whether they are between ANR and researchers, or among researchers themselves.
At some events, online networking tables have been set up to share ideas and encourage discussions in smaller groups. This set-up has been an effective way to compensate for the absence of in-person meetings, and to include in the conversation people who are located far away and would not have been able to join otherwise.
