GenZ project opened a call at the end of 2020 for pilot studies to be focused on understanding and supporting interactions in the COVID conditions. The six pilot studies from different fields at the University of Oulu received funding and have been conducted during the spring 2021.

The GenZ pilot studies focus on, e.g., the following questions:

  • What are the human competences or skills needed for interaction and work in teams face to face and remotely?
  • How do different technologies affect interaction?
  • How can conditions for interactions be designed and supported for COVID/post-COVID needs?
  • How has the COVID epidemic transformed (facilitated, constrained or something else) the ways of expressing, understanding, and interpreting interactions?
