During COVID-19 pandemic, the science community has turned all the efforts
in helping: HEP laboratories have transformed into ventilators and mask
manufacturers, computing data centers have invested their resources to
understand the virus behind COVID-19 better, etc...

However, on the other side of the coin, there are new daily life
challenges faced by researchers. In this talk we will talk about the
difficulties faced by researchers in these circumstances. The effects of
confinement on, families, job contracts, career development, travel
constraints and working conditions can be intricate.

We will also talk on how the pandemia is having a global impact in our
research field. Post COVID-19 consequences on, conferences, collaboration
meetings, travelling and reactions from funding agencies, are some of the
topics that will be discussed.
