PANDEMIC Pandora's Box: The demographic, Economic, Social and Psychological impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our world. The experiences we have had since the onset of the pandemic have affected us in many ways. The pandemic killed, but has also had a profound impact on the organization of employment and work, our behaviour, social dynamics and mental health. These effects have not been equal, being felt by some groups and societies much more than others.

Researchers at the University of Luxembourg are currently conducting a number of research projects on various aspects of the coronavirus pandemic in order to understand the consequences of COVID-19 on individuals and societies, and to develop guidelines for policy makers to boost economic performance while at the same time protecting the health and well-being of the population. This research aims to propose best practices to support resilience and mental and physical health, and provide health authorities with recommendations to increase preparedness and optimize responses for the ongoing and future epidemics.
