Mundo pós-Covid-19
For the coordination of UBIAS, there are growing indicators that the world will be different after this crisis and that globalization will be questioned in many areas

The network UBIAS (University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study) has an open call to receive essays on the theme How will/should the world change? The corona crisis as an interdisciplinary challenge. Researchers from all areas and countries may participate.

The articles will be published on the websites of the network and of the IEA, as well as on the blog Interdisciplinarity, managed by University of Bielefeld's ZiF (Center for Interdisciplinary Research). Texts written in English must have a maximum of 10,000 characters, including spaces, and sent to the emails or by the end of May. If the received material is considered to be of high quality, it is possible that it will later generate a publication by UBIAS.

The network

UBIAS is currently composed of 41 members, representing 44 institutes of advanced studies, all based in universities. Guilherme Ary Plonski, deputy director of the IEA, is the coordinator for the 2018-2020 biennium. The network aims to exchange experiences and carry out joint research. For this call, UBIAS works in partnership with ZiF.
