Without doubt, this year is atypical – but we don’t want to remember the negative stuff only. We are reinventing TIPiCO and turning it into aTIPiCO, which will be atypical but also special. A high-level series with great scientific impact, in downloadable episodes which can be watched anytime, anywhere. The impossibility of meeting at Santiago de Compostela like every year, seeing each other, sharing experiences, enjoying the town and interacting in person with speakers and other experts poses a great challenge. But we will rise to it. Again, we have brought together the world’s top experts in infectious diseases and vaccines. We will rely on their experience, their knowledge and their research to better undersand where we stand, and what we can do in order to beat this pandemic. We will talk about SARS-CoV-2 and vaccines against COVID-19 with the researchers themselves, but also about other infections and vaccines, despite COVID-19, and the essential lessons they provide. aTIPiCO wants to learn from those who have brought us to where we are in desease prevention – we are confident that they will lead us out of this pandemic too.
