  1. COVID-19 vaccines: What if we don’t have enough of them?

    Vaccines usually have complex manufacturing processes and long production lead times. It is likely that we will face acute shortages in the initial period after the vaccine is produced. We will then have to rely on good targeting and rationing strategies for the quantity of vaccines available. Traditional inventory management systems using backlog or underage costs are generally improper in the human life context. Research by Professor Behzad Samii weighs out other inventory allocation mechanisms.
  2. Flexibility is your best weapon to limit the damage from unforeseen, unexpected change

    How should we react best as a society, business or individual to the many challenges that the coronavirus poses? The extent of the impact is not only being felt in terms of health, but clearly also in the economy and society. According to Professor Brecht Cardoen, flexibility is the best weapon to limit the damage, irrespective of the change or the level at which the change is introduced. Putting flexibility into practice is most visible in the healthcare sector. However, it can also be a good strategy for other companies that are looking for suitable adjustments to the workplace.
