COVID-19 Lunch talks
COVID-19 and the corresponding policy measures to mitigate the impact of the dispersion of this virus among the population have an important impact on our society and correspondingly the transport sector was significantly impacted. To get an insight into the impact of COVID-19 on the transport sector, the BIVEC-GIBET organizes a series of lunch talks that tackle different aspects of this impact.
