If Covid has taught us anything, it’s that science has never before been as important and challenged as it is today, working hard under pressure to come up with fast solutions to immediate problems. Science did it, developing a vaccine and new treatment methods to manage the rate of infection, despite high case numbers. This is the essence of all areas of science and at the JKU, too: Conducting the type of research that helps and benefits humankind.
