Coronavirus - Our Answers to the Pandemic

The corona crisis is an extremely challenging situation - not just for every one of us, but also looking at society as a whole. Here at RWTH, it, of course, also affects various scientific disciplines and operational areas. The new RWTH podcast "Coronavirus - Our Answers to the Pandemic" will feature a multitude of experts voicing their opinion on these matters.

Together with his team from the RWTH Chair of Sociology of Technology and Organization, or STO for short, Professor Roger Häußling will use video conferencing to conduct interviews with the RWTH staff responsible for the digitalization of teaching, virologists and physicians at the University Hospital, the Rectorate of RWTH, the AStA Students' Committee, political scientists as well as experts from the fields of ethics, economics (including innovation research), computer science, and mechanical engineering.
