Daphne Ahrendt, Senior Research manager at Eurofound, will present the first findings from round three of Eurofound’s e-survey Living, working and COVID-19, fielded in February and March 2021. The LIVE webinar will be an opportunity to explore how EU citizens’ social, employment and economic situation has evolved during one year of closures and restrictions in the wake of COVID-19. For the first time, Daphne will also share findings on EU citizens’ attitudes to vaccines and EU-wide vaccination programmes.

Moderated by Mary McCaughey, Head of Information and Communication at Eurofound, the webinar will look at the main country differences and trends over the past fourteen months, as well as various stories that have emerged since Eurofound’s first and second rounds of the survey in April 2020 and July 2020. A LIVE chat will be available for a questions and answers session with participants.
