COVID-19 Knowledge Hub

The COVID-19 pandemic is having a momentous impact on European societies in every sphere and at every level. From the beginning, the EUI community mobilised to take part in key debates about the ongoing crisis through events, research activities and public engagement. 


Recognizing that present crisis requires fresh data and new ideas, EUI launched a competitive selection to promote and fund new research across the humanities and social sciences. Seventeen new projects were funded through this venture. Others scholars across the EUI have redirected their research to the current challenge on their own initiative.

Data Portal 

The EUI Social Sciences Data Portal aims to provide a "one stop shop" for social and economic data on the effects of the pandemic - data about infections, testing, and deaths; data about income and social status; and documentary data, such as government decrees and laws - as a crucial resource for social science research. 

Reading List

The EUI library staff have created a dedicated collection in Cadmus to highlight various types of contributions by EUI members on COVID-19. Browse and read the content of nearly 200 contributions.


Since March, the EUI community has hosted dozens of events addressing the short- and long-term social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. A full list of past events is available on our events page.
