The findings of the research aim to support global recovery and renewal, and to enhance the resilience of society in a post-pandemic world.
They are the first jointly-funded projects in the world to investigate the medium-and long-term effects of the pandemic on all aspects of health, social, economic, political, and cultural life in unprecedented detail.
The researchers will lead the projects, worth nearly 14.4 million Euros (approx.£12 million; approx. 16 million USD), from 12 countries across four continents.
The projects are funded by 16 major funders. The participating countries and funding organisations in this call are:
