The conference brings together 16 sociological research projects, including five projects from the Department of Sociologi, that received competitive Covid-19 Research Grants during 2020.

In Denmark, emergency fundings had been granted to numerous projects studying a wide range of issues of the pandemic crisis as it unfolded, providing an unique insight into its social dynamics. The virtual conference aims to facilitate dialogue and discussion about this rich body of research and its (preliminary) results. The focus will be on comparative aspects, between cases, groups or in an international context.

Researchers present their preliminary findings in four thematic sessions to allow for knowledge exchange and discussion.


  • Work and employment
  • Welfare and civil society
  • Everyday life and behaviour
  • Politics and the public sphere

The conference language is English and participation is free of charge.
