The third edition of "TU Vision: Digital Salon" looked at the global perspective of the current pandemic and its significance for Technical Universities. Colleagues from various countries shared with us how they were affected by COVID-19 and the political measures around it. Each briefly described how they reacted to the restrictions, how they adapted to the new situation, and how they prepare for an uncertain future. They also brought in their disciplinary perspectives and shared their thoughts about how their respective academic fields will change due to this disruption. Based on these insights and ideas we then discussed which lessons could be drawn for TU Wien and our approach to research and teaching.
