The coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 have turned our world upside down. The pandemic has been a profound shock to society at a global, national and local level. In this report we take a look at the future actions and opportunities for post-pandemic innovation across 3 post-pandemic horizons: the immediate response, restarting the economy and the long-term economic recovery.
While the effect of the pandemic has been dramatic, we are learning valuable lessons, discovering new post-pandemic innovation opportunities and asking ourselves an important question: how we can build back better? Within the report, we are exploring possible future actions across three post-pandemic horizons:
- Horizon 1 – The immediate emergency response to the pandemic.
- Horizon 2 – The early steps in restarting the economy. What happens in the gap between tight lockdown and having a long-term solution? As we try to get the post-pandemic economy and society working again, what we need to do?
- Horizon 3 – What are the long-term opportunities for the post-pandemic economic recovery? What must we change to conquer coronavirus or adapt to it?
