Bringing together the social science community’s response to COVID-19

The Campaign for Social Science (the advocacy voice of the Academy of Social Sciences) has launched a new digital ‘hub’, designed to bring together the social science community’s response to COVID-19.

The Hub draws on existing, on-going and planned work across the social sciences in the UK and the purpose is to inform, showcase and stimulate collaboration across research, practice and policy communities. The Hub showcases some leading examples of research, think-pieces and policy analysis across the full spectrum of the social sciences which contribute to understanding and tackling the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on society and economy. The Hub brings together a range of resources created by Academy Fellows and other distinguished social scientists. It provides easy access to portals and hubs created by universities, think tanks, learned societies and other research institutions.

The hub can be accessed here. The Campaign for Social Science note that this is a dynamic project that will evolve over time and they will be growing and updating the content of the hub over the coming weeks and months.
