Kyoto University - RIETI Symposium

A Fusion of Humanities & Sciences Research on the COVID-19 Pandemic: Prospects for with-COVID-19 society


It will soon be three years since the outbreak of COVID-19. Countries around the world are searching for ways to create a society based on the premise of living with COVID-19 infection. In order to maintain social and economic activities while controlling the spread of infection, it is essential to construct a new fusion of life- and social sciences that integrates the humanities and sciences, taking into account the relationship between people's health and economic activities.
To this end, Kyoto University and RIETI began globally-unparalleled joint research in 2020 and are conducting a variety of cutting-edge research spanning the life and social sciences, making maximum use of data from the "Nagahama 0th Prevention Cohort" which Kyoto University is constructing in Nagahama City, Shiga Prefecture. In this symposium, we will introduce some of the results of this research, including the characteristics of the spread of COVID-19 infection and the status of behavioral changes in people, which were revealed using the latest antibody tests.
