COVID-19 - from vaccine strategies to effects in developing countries and green recovery

Time Wednesday 5 May, 2021 at 10:00 - 12:15
Place Online

The symposium highlights new research on the pandemic from an international perspective. The lens is interdisciplinary and takes a broader perspective on the pandemic to show how different parts of our society are connected, in the same way as the sustainable development goals. In the panel discussion that follows the symposium presentations, the transformation to a more sustainable society is discussed from this interdisciplinary angle, touching on goal conflicts and synergies.
