This is especially important for projects proposing in-person interactions such as meetings, exchanges, workshops, and others. Applicants may propose such in-person activities but should include alternate activities, e.g., webinars, virtual meetings, and others, in the case that the former are prohibited or impractical at the time the program is proposed.
