The impacts of COVID-19 across our society, in our medical system, businesses, social organisations, our economy and mental health.
The impacts of COVID-19 are being felt across our society, in our medical system, businesses, social organisations, our economy, as well as the mental health and wellbeing of individuals. In this context RMIT with its partners will assemble cross disciplinary teams to analyse the critical issues in order both to influence the societal debate and to develop focused research based interventions. These activities will look at five focal areas. For each “Start”, roundtables with industrial partners will initiate cross-disciplinary analysis of the critical issues involved. This will lead to a Briefing and a White paper to contribute to the societal debate and to define critical areas in RMIT and its partners to contribute.
