IDS Newsletter #8, September 2020

Dear IDS members, friends and colleagues, 

Welcome to the 8th issue of our new IDS newsletter. As the fight against the pandemic continues, we hope that some sense of “normal” is slowly making its way back to all our members’ daily lives. Hopefully, some news from us can bring some joy and inspiration!
