Learn more about new opportunities from Government, parliament and others to apply your research or expertise to inform Covid-19 policy.

Cabinet Office COVID-19 Outbreak Expert Database

The Cabinet Office Open Innovation Team has created a COVID-19 Outbreak Expert Database and is seeking registration from individuals with expertise relating to COVID-19, or it's impacts in the fields of health, welfare, employment, education and other key areas.

Parliament and Parliamentarians use these insights to help carry out their function effectively; that is to say, to represent the people, scrutinise the Government, debate important and pressing issues, and pass legislation.

To speed up the process of Parliament accessing relevant research expertise those with expertise relating to the COVID-19 outbreak or its impacts are invited to sign up to the COVID-19 Outbreak Expert Database.

If you are interested in providing expert advice to the government  sign up now.

Campaign for Social Science Research Project

The campaign (part of the Academy of Social Sciences) is inviting social sciences researchers to share details of any of their work that increases understanding of how to tackle Covid-19 – for a new online platform and report. Visit their research hub for leading examples of research, think-pieces and policy analysis.

If you are interested in taking part, please let us know via info@psa.ac.uk


Covid-19 initiative

The purpose is to showcase the social sciences contributions, and to underline the importance of social science expertise being recognised and used as the government seeks to understand and mitigate the impacts of Covid-19 on people, society and the economy. It's early days in the project; as a resource this ‘hub’ will grow over the coming weeks and months and we’ll be adding some online events too.

We would like our members to be aware of the invitation to take a look at the pages Bringing together the social science response to covid19 and hub of hubs social sciences responding to covid19.
