IDC Impact Series: Science and Policy: Science & Policy: Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and their impact on policy during the Covid-19-crisis

In times of crisis, the relationship between science and policymaking attracts a lot of public attention. The current COVID-19 crisis shows the need for evidence-based policymaking, perhaps more than any other crisis before. While some scientific disciplines quickly rose to prominence in advising and even steering policy, others remained less in the spotlights despite signals from within the disciplines themselves or from society at large.

The interactive panel debate will take the COVID-19 crisis as a starting point for a much-needed discussion on the role of science in society and specifically on the relevance and impact of social sciences and humanities (SSH) on policymaking. SSH researchers from different disciplines, experienced in working with policymakers, will take stock of today's situation and reflect on their future role.

Due to the recent change of the applicable Corona-measures the event will be hosted exclusively online. No offline event possible! The link for the online interactive event will be shared with the subscribers the day before.
