The University of Groningen has been awarded a large Horizon Europe grant to study the politics and governance of the post-pandemic. The project, named REGROUP (Rebuilding governance and resilience out of the pandemic) will be based at the Faculty of Arts and be coordinated by Dr Piero Tortola, who will lead a consortium of 14 universities and think tanks across Europe.
REGROUP will develop comprehensive diagnostic and normative analyses of the socio-political implications of Covid-19, and formulate policy advice for European Union policy-makers and other stakeholders on how to best (re)configure public policies and institutions for the years to come.
In addition to coordinating the entire project, RUG will contribute research across a number of topical themes, and lead a Work Package - coordinated by Dr Benjamin Leruth - using mini-publics to study the connections between knowledge and institutional trust.
