A look at Covid-19 from i3 researchers
Posted on 10 October 2021

Health crisis and economic crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted lifestyles, relationships with others and the environment of billions of people. Since March 2020, crisis management in hospitals, social distancing, the systematic wearing of masks, generalized telecommuting... have had a lasting effect on the daily life of the planet.

The economists, managers, sociologists, psychologists, ergonomists, and researchers in information and communication sciences who make up the Interdisciplinary Institute of Innovation (i3) have put their expertise in innovation at the service of deciphering the health and social crisis.

i3 researchers have examined the social and economic effects of this crisis: a report on the management of the French hospital system, the provision of design tools to the war room of a hospital to implement creative responses, reflection on remote work, a study on the effects of the curfew in Germany, distance learning, wearing masks, customer-supplier relations in the time of confinement, citizen participation in crisis management, digital inequalities in the time of the pandemic, Covid-19 and the disruption of the landscape of apps. ... are some of the many topics addressed by i3 researchers during their fieldwork in this unprecedented crisis.

Their reflections have been the subject of numerous publications.

I3 researchers are also involved in projects studying the effects of the pandemic. The EXPERCRISE project, the French component of an international project, coordinated by two American researchers - Sheila Jasanoff (Harvard Kennedy School) and Stephen Hilgartner (Cornell University), is supervised by Brice Laurent, a researcher at CSI-Mines ParisTech. The national MESCOV project on social media during the Covid-19 crisis is coordinated by Caroline Rizza, a research professor at Télécom ParisTech. Its partner is the Ecole des Mines d'Albi-Carmaux (ITM school). This project has received a favorable opinion from the Analysis, Research and Perspective Committee (CARE) and a grant from the Ministry of Higher Education.
