Coronavirus (Covid-19): How the BAM Community can help

Coronavirus (Covid-19): How the BAM Community can help

The business and management community can support the UK Government, Parliament, and the wider research and innovation community in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic. This page is a resource to help you use your expertise to do exactly that.  It will be updated regularly with opportunities for you to share your knowledge and research with policymakers and others as they seek solutions and understanding in these difficult times. 

In particular, we encourage you to sign up to the two separate databases of experts now managed by the UK Government (here) and the Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology (POST, here).  Once you have signed up to the POST database, we also encourage you to fill out POST’s COVID-19 Outbreak Survey, which asks ‘you to consider five key questions to help UK Parliament in its response to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impacts over the short, medium and long-term.’  This takes less than 10 minutes, and POST is already in the process of collating answers to help policymakers form a clearer picture of the pandemic’s impacts.

We also strongly encourage you to submit at one page of written evidence to the parliamentary inquiry on the impact of coronavirus on businesses and workers being run by the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee. The deadline for submissions has been extended until the 29th of May, and this is an excellent opportunity for our Fellows and Members to have an impact. For more information, see:  

Below, we provide these links to these and many other opportunities for you to share your knowledge for good, including a number of other current government consultations and parliamentary inquiries covering aspects of the pandemic.  We also provide a number of other resources and links to help you engage on the issue. If you have any questions or would like further information on how you can help, please contact:
