The University of Pavia – member of the European university alliance EC²U – has just launched a video of encouragement during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The video description reads as follows:

“We have tapped into our creativity with a moral obligation to continue to be a community. Universities have not closed. They adapted. In order to continue being close while at a distance. And to return renewed, stronger than before.”
