The corona crisis is affecting our everyday life in an unprecedented way. In addition to the efforts of science to get the virus under control medically and epidemiologically as well as economically, there are first projects that are also researching the effects on other areas of life. How does the crisis affect work and family life, mental health, consumption, eating and shopping habits, social cohesion or expectations towards politics and administration?
1. The Citizen Science project "Living with Corona" by Prof. Dr. Tilman Brück from the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops and ISDC - International Security and Development Center is researching life in times of the corona virus pandemic.
2. At the Social Science Research Center Berlin, several researchers want to find out how the corona virus has changed the everyday life of people in Germany in a short period of time with regard to their work situation and family life.
3. An international study led by the EU Horizon2020 project DynaMORE in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Resilience Research is currently researching the psychological mechanisms that can promote mental coping with this crisis. The study of the research network is already available in English and German and is currently being translated by an international team of scientists into 20 other languages, including Italian, Spanish, French and Chinese. The results will provide a valuable knowledge base for dealing with perhaps the greatest challenge facing the world community for many decades.
