SRF provide access to their existing substantial online following (>170,000 members, March 2017) and experience in organizing and hosting webinars (http://www.youtube.com/c/SudaneseResearchersFoundation). Through TReND's global academic network we aim to identify and invite suitable speakers who are prepared to spend one hour in front of a webcam to give an online presentation on their field of expertise.
Each session will be organized and moderated by a bilingual SRF volunteer with the relevant academic background. The webcast will be held in English and broadcast live, and SRF members will submit comments and questions through the moderator to form an interactive session. Afterwards, the video will be uploaded to YouTube to form a growing archive of research talks. Over time, selected popular talks will in addition be translated into Arabic to further increase their reach in the region.
Upon receipt, we will review the material and be in contact soon after.
