SARS-CoV-2 holds the world in suspense. We also want to help keep the virus from spreading any further. That is why we have closed all TP buildings including the Conference Center INF and the Business Development Center to the public to protect our employees and have an emergency team working in shifts at both locations.
The New England Journal of Medicine describes that the current etiquette rules and government regulations are very useful, see Aerosol and Surface Stability of SARS-CoV-2 as Compared with SARS-CoV-1. The investigation of morbidity, lethality and non-pharmacological interventions is the subject of a summary by the German Network of Evidence-based Medicine e.V. entitled Covid-19: Where is the evidence? (in German).
Despite the radical changes, we are not cancelling any of the events or consultations we have planned and are postponing them "until September". We want to continue to offer our services without restrictions - now completely online. That's why we are digitising events, for example in the two accelerator programmes for life sciences and IT B2B startups. We offer these to participants as webinars: from mentoring and coaching to the final pitch in front of investors.
The opening event of the SingularityU Mannheim-Heidelberg Chapter was our first online event dedicated to the fight against SARS-CoV-2. Bart de Witte, founder of the Hippo AI Foundation, has launched an initiative to reduce the suffering caused by the virus through open source in medical technology.
