Since February 2019, the Borderless Knowledge Lecture Series has featured CEU faculty, leading Hungarian experts and well-known public figures discussing recent scientific findings and their direct impact on contemporary life. The last installment, broadcast in English earlier this summer, focused on social research conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
From “we-health” and privacy, to emerging policy perspectives, the CEU professors showed how their research can address health, social, economic, legal and cultural impacts of the outbreak. Sharing their research on the pandemic, the speakers introduced potential interventions as well as ideas regarding how the world will be altered as a result of COVID-19.
Hear from Professor Judit Sandor, director of the Center for Ethics and Law in Biomedicine, Miklos Koren, professor in the Department of Economics and Business, and Michael Dorsch, associate professor in the School of Public Policy here:
Previous talks from CEU’s Borderless Knowledge Series have covered topics of the pandemic’s preventability, imminent financial crisis, archeological mysteries, global warming, networks and research on childhood cognitive development.
The next Borderless Knowledge discussion, COVID Under the Microscope, will be broadcast on October 9 at 6pm, as part of Vienna’s Lange Nacht Der Forschung (Long Night of Research).
