The eHealth sessions will be held from 1300-1500 GMT and presenters come will be drawn  from a variety of disciplines and countries, such as Mexico, India, Russia, Brazil and Tunisia. Participants can participate from anywhere in the world, interacting through the virtual platform called, Colaboratorio, designed specifically to enable communities to interact, but also affords a secure, virtual space for continued collaboration.

The meetings will be held as follows:

The development and fostering of Global Science Communities is the major activity of MAGIC as it works to create meaningful ways to engage communities from across the globe.

MAGIC comprises partners from Latin America, Europe, the Caribbean, West and Central Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, North Africa and the Middle East, Central Asia and Asia-Pacific and is a Horizon 2020 project, supported by the European Commission.
