Hanken Foundation Distinguished Fellow and Nobel laureate, Bengt Holmström, has actively participated in the public debate in Finland on the covid-19 pandemic and discusses at our event in an interview with the journalist Baba Lybeck how society and the economy have been affected by the long-running pandemic.

This is followed by four short presentations of 7 minutes each of Hanken School of Economics’ covid-19 related research: on challenges in virtual work; covid-19 and auditing; the functionality of supply chains; and altruism and egoism in the pandemic.
The event, which is held in English, is broadcast live via Teams.
