Science for Resilience: Conference at Vienna BioCenter to discuss outlooks on Covid-19

Nobody knows what the Covid-19 pandemic will bring in autumn 2022. However, there are more than two years of experience in living with the disease. In these two years, scientists have improved the ways in which they make findings available.

Looking ahead, what can society learn from the way the pandemic has been handled so far? And how can newly obtained knowledge be best applied to inform evidence-based decisions? By discussing these questions, the conference “Science for Resilience - Learnings from the Pandemic” aims to promote an open and interdisciplinary culture of debate in Austria. The conference will be organized by the Future Operations platform of the Austrian government in collaboration with the Vienna BioCenter, in particular IMBA group leader Ulrich Elling (see also below).

This conference is addressing issues raised in a draft paper by the Future Operations Board. The finished paper will be presented at the conference.

23 May 2022 – 24 May 2022
