Support our multidisciplinary research on the coronavirus

The Covid-19 pandemic affects us Finns and the entire world population in many ways and on many levels. The effects of the virus are seen in hospitals, homes, workplaces and streets. The crisis is a threat to both health and the economy because it causes severe physiological symptoms as well as loneliness, insecurity, and financial distress.

Solving complex and wide-ranging phenomena requires multidisciplinary research and collaboration, which is why researchers of health, society and technology have come together.

In all our spearhead fields, we at Tampere University want to be at the forefront of curbing the pandemic and combating the suffering caused by the disease. Our multidisciplinary research collaboration is key to finding ways to determine why the virus is spreading and ensuring the viability of society in the exceptional circumstances. We can assist hospital and municipal staff to develop tools for tracking Covid-19 transmission patterns. Among other things, our university has extensive expertise in vaccine research, health sociology, data analytics, gerontology, and international health policy. Our expertise in educational sciences, youth research and social philosophy highlights the effects of the epidemic on people’s lives.

“Our vision is to use the collaboration between the fields of health, society and technology to produce scientific, commercial, social, and health-promoting breakthroughs. In order to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, multidisciplinary research and extensive co-operation within the world of science are needed.”
 Juha Teperi, Vice Rector for Research at Tampere University.
