Given the health emergency we are experiencing around the world, the scientific community has been undertaking significant efforts to understand how we can effectively address the pandemic and its related economic impacts. In line with this, IBEI Assistant Professor and Beatriu de Pinós Research Fellow Charles Roger has reoriented his research on informality and global governance to respond more effectively to the new situation. As a result, the European Commission has included his Beatriu de Pinós project in the list of Horizon 2020-funded research programs with the potential to contribute to the fight against the crisis.
