The CIVICA alliance mobilises knowledge and action in response to the COVID-19 crisis
The COVID-19 crisis poses unprecedented challenges that call for complex insights, collective responses and immediate action.
A deeper understanding of the short- and long-term effects of the pandemic alongside active involvement in local communities is crucial in helping society navigate and make informed choices about the present and future.
Due to their capacity to synthesise diverse forms of knowledge across different disciplines, the social sciences are in an ideal position to provide insight into the social and economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis and to effect positive social change.
By harnessing this potential, we, the universities in the CIVICA alliance, are fully committed to seeding our knowledge into the public realm and to engaging for the common good of Europe and the world in the wake of the pandemic.
Our scholars across all CIVICA campuses are making their research available for experts, policymakers and the general public alike, collaborative research projects are taking a hands-on approach to generate solutions, while alumni and student communities are joining forces to actively help local communities.
