First recordings WCRI webinars online
With the virtual edition of this year's WCRI just ended, the first recordings of the webinars are already available. Because each session is programmed twice to accomodate the various time zone differences, the sessions are titled with two numbers. From the NRIN website, we have only linked to one of these sessions, but if you are interested in the other recordings and more detailed info on the sessions, you can find them on the WCRI 2021 website.
