COVID-19 is unprecedented in its magnitude: beyond the short-term repeated health and economic shocks, the long-term effects on human capital, productivity, and behavior can be serious. The pandemic will continue to have long-term ramifications even after a vaccine is widely distributed and the world returns to some semblance of normalcy.
The world’s inhabitants have adapted. The complexities of daily life have been adopted by technology, which has exploded with a plethora of solutions. The workplace has been displaced in many ways, but it has also seen remarkable productivity and a strong enthusiasm for innovation and reinvention. Governments are being challenged to support their citizens and secure sociability.
MTE 2021– The 2nd COVID-19 International Innovation Awards (a virtual event) is scheduled to return in June 2021. The awards were created to recognize and honor all COVID-19-related inventions.
