The Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent lockdown across the world have raised new social and economic issues that urgently require further analysis. Here are the contributions of the TSE scientific community in this regard:
TSE/IAST workshop on “Covid-19 & Economics”
This weekly workshop gathers researchers from TSE and IAST interested by or working on any topics related to the Covid-19 pandemic. It allows researchers (from our community but also outside of our community) to present on-going research, projects under development or already funded, as well as preliminary ideas and findings related to the pandemic. The workshop is transversal by nature and informal.

New French state Covid-19 funding granted to TSE
The main goal of the project Covid-Metrics is to use the state of the art of econometric methods, time series analysis, and credit risk management knowledge, to model, estimate and predict the outcomes of Covid-19.
TSE faculty reacted quickly to the Covid-19 outbreak, providing ongoing economic comment and analysis to the public and decision-makers via the press and via a special issue of TSE Mag on the economic consequences of Covid-19:
