The restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic brought together researchers from the Netherlands and India in the research project EQUIMOB to assess effects of the pandemic on social life. This paper describes the opportunities and limitations of methods for conducting remote research, and in additional papers we will discuss two examples of qualitative remote research (telephone interviews and graphic elicitation). Based on first-hand experience, the authors provide an overview of their work in using these methods.
