The Conference


No one knows what autumn 2022 will bring. But we do have more than two years of experience with the pandemic. What’s more, science has learned to make its findings available. Looking ahead, what can we learn from the way the pandemic has been handled so far? And how can newly obtained knowledge be best applied to inform evidence-based decisions? By discussing these questions, the “Science for Resilience” conference aims to promote an open and interdisciplinary culture of debate in Austria.


This conference is addressing the issues raised in the draft paper by the Future Operations Board. The finished paper will be presented at the conference.
