Unfiltered perspectives on global issues by research and academic leaders

Letter from the Editor

Not Alone emphasizes that no one is alone in facing the challenges of the moment. It's a monthly publication that showcases new perspectives on global issues directly from research and academic leaders. It is about leaders speaking to other leaders, present and future. The contributors to Not Alone are chosen for their prominence and influence in the fields of research and education. They are established leaders with a wealth of experience and wisdom to share. The authors choose the topic of their contribution — with conviction and passion being the only requirements.

I hope the ideas stimulate your thinking and encourage you to delve deeper into the subjects that interest you the most. And I hope that spending a few minutes every month reading it will become an expectation and a source of inspiration. You are Not Alone.
