Dear members of the CATÓLICA-LISBON community,

The pandemic seems to be getting worse around the world and we will all need to balance the imposition of sanitary restrictions that slow the spread of the virus, with our individual responsibility in avoiding unnecessary risky situations, while maintaining a productive life and work that sustains our Economy. CATÓLICA-LISBON continues bringing you important knowledge and tools to understand this novel situation and help all of us deal with it in the best way possible.

Our Knowledge@Católica-Lisbon Conference, this Tuesday June 30th at 17h, (in Portuguese) will focus on the recent evolution of the epidemic in Portugal and its true health impacts. Our guest, Mathematics Professor Jorge Buescu from FCUL, will present is latest analysis of the epidemics evolution, while our Economics Professor Miguel Gouveia will present his analysis of the health impacts of the epidemic based on the loss of “quality adjusted life years” of the population, which is a good measure to advise effective public policies. Please register here for this very interesting digital conference.

Due to the pandemic, many people are facing difficult situations in which they may need to negotiate with an employer, a bank, a landlord, or a business partner, in a position of weakness.  Our knowledge conference this Thursday July 2nd at 17h, (in Portuguese) will feature our Negotiations Professor João Matos discussing “Negotiating from a Disadvantaged Position”. Please register here to learn about new frameworks to negotiate and excel in tough situations.

I am also pleased to share that last week we concluded the six employability webinars that our Careers & Talent team offered the wider community under the initiative “Objetivo: Emprego”. Over six weeks more than 5.000 people joined us live in Zoom or in YouTube, to learn from our career experts the best strategies to position in the job market and find suitable employment. Congratulations to the Careers & Talent team for launching this wonderful initiative.

We have much to share at CATÓLICA-LISBON and #WeStandUNITED. United as a community and united in support of a healthy economy capable of fulfilling the needs and aspirations of all citizens.

Filipe Santos, Dean of CATÓLICA-LISBON
