About the conference

For this year 2021, EPRN selected the following theme for the 7th annual research conference :
“Economic policy measures to enhance productive capacities post COVID-19 Crisis” . The socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the COVID-19 disease itself and efforts to quarantine it (Johnsen and al’ 2020). What was widely viewed as a ‘Chinese problem,’ and then an ‘Italian problem’ has become an ‘everybody problem.’ In most cases, Governments imposed severe social distancing policies, work, and school closures, and the like. This inevitably has led to almost immediate economic hardship, which then leads governments to propose increasingly bold anti-recession measures. Nations must ensure that temporary solutions don’t create long-lasting problems. All this is due to the highly contagious nature of the virus, and the inexorable implications of its explosive spread during the ‘acceleration phase’ of the epidemic.

Why Attend?

The Research conference will create a discussion forum on relevant research findings to reveal the status of the economic sectors post COVID-19; and suggest specific short-term, medium-term, and long-term recommendations to uplift the country’s socio-economic development. During the 7th Research Conference, papers developed by EPRN members worldwide will be presented around the sub topics above. EPRN excepts to have six quality papers selected to be presented. Policy briefs will be developed to summarise findings from presented papers and reports and be shared with concerned policy makers, the research community, and other interested users.
