Frank van Oort obtains research grant from the COVID-19 programme of NWO ZonMw
This collaborative grant of 500.000 euros is awarded to a multidisciplinary research group. Together with the consortium partners, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), Erasmus School of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Van Oort will investigate the societal effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the (intended) measures for mitigation.
