COVID INITIATIVES

COVID INITIATIVES

Genopole mobilized rapidly to support not only its accredited businesses and laboratories affected by the COVID-19 health crisis but also its campus neighbor, the South Île-de-France Medical Center. The ecosystem’s strength is visible therein: a united group of actors, many very aware of the weight of serious disease, enabling rapid action in an unprecedented context.

REAL-TIME INFORMATION

On Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram, Genopole adapted the content it relays to its subscribers, proposing both information on the COVID-19 crisis and learning supports on the specificities of the disease and its propagation, the differences between antigen and PCR tests, and other pertinent subjects.

HELPING THE YOUNG TO BUILD THEIR FUTURES

Suffering from isolation, educational difficulties and uncertain futures, today’s youth are also victims of the COVID-19 pandemic. In early April, when France was under strict confinement, Genopole worked with Onisep to develop the contents of their Careers in Biology brochure. An introductory section highlighting the main functions within health biotechnologies was the result of a visit by Onisep to the Yposkesi innovative therapies manufacturing center.

SCIENCE A CLICK AWAY

Genopole didn’t let the health crisis prevent it from holding the annual Science Festival. In partnership with the University of Évry, Genopole invited the general public and learning establishments to a 100% online Science Festival held under the banner “Science on the Big Screen.” Filmed visits and workshops, interviews, live meetings with scientists, tutorials for home experiments and much more were made available on a dedicated website.
Genopole’s digital resources and its actors were brought together, new supports created and live discussions with researchers organized to ensure that science remained available to all, at home and at school.
