Research projects

The present crisis, as well as its long-term implications, requires research knowledge, fresh data and new ideas.

In spring 2020, EUI launched a competitive selection to promote and fund new research across the humanities and social sciences. Of 30 proposals submitted by Ph.D. researchers, postdoctoral fellows and faculty from all departments and units, 17 were selected to receive this new COVID-19 funding. These projects bring EUI expertise in social sciences and humanities to bear on many of the most urgent societal challenges connected to the COVID-19 crisis

Additional Projects

In addition to the new projects receiving funding from the EUI, professors and researchers from across the university have adapted ongoing research and created new initiatives that apply their expertise to the unfolding COVID-19 emergency. The variety of these additional projects – including trade, migration, the environment, healthcare and other factors – reflects the breadth of social science expertise at the EUI
