COVID-19 confronts us with fundamentally
important and novel questions, some of them
humanity has never faced before. New
questions require new answers. The world
after COVID-19 will be a di erent one.
Science – built on the foundation of reason
and sustainability – must create prospects
for and foster positive change. In this volume,
we, as a collective of authors, have tried to
the best of our knowledge and in good faith
to provide impetus for such change.
