The impact of COVID-19 has been dramatic. The pandemic has not only had medical implications. It also gave rise to other problems such as loneliness in young adults. Research at PDPC also aims to answer questions related to society at large. Pearl Dykstra, Professor of Empirical Sociology at Erasmus University Rotterdam: "Working together, we must and can use insights from multiple disciplines in the fight against future pandemics and disasters. To address the consequences for social divisions in society, for example. The complexity of pandemics, disasters, and their aftermath means that a multidisciplinary approach is required. Collaboration within PDPC is crucial as the parties are complementary and together they can achieve more than each on their own."
