TDAI and partners launch COVID recovery research initiative

How can communities and society recover from the COVID-19 global pandemic and evolve to a new normal that is not only more resilient to future shocks but also sustainable and just? What should the new normal be?

TDAI, the Sustainability Institute and the Infectious Disease Institute are partnering to launch the new Rebuild, Renew, Reshape initiative at Ohio State that will support interdisciplinary research on the sustainability, resilience and justice dimensions of the COVID-19 recovery. The initiative kicks off with a series of virtual mini workshops from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Oct. 23, Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 with facilitation support from the Office of Research. The sessions will help researchers brainstorm ideas, and interdisciplinary teams that emerge will receive help in developing, growing and sustaining their efforts. Any Ohio State researcher with PI status may participate. The deadline to register for microlabs: Oct. 14.
