BAM Community answers the call in the fight against Covid-19

BAM Community answers the call in the fight against Covid-19

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) has now published a list of those researchers who joined their Covid-19 expert database and responded to the POST horizon scanning survey of expert’s concerns around the impacts of COVID-19.  

We are proud to note that three BAM Fellows and over a dozen BAM Members contributed to this survey, which was used to determine the 15 broad areas of concern around which POST is now working to generate and publish publicly available syntheses.  The first three syntheses made available will be of interest to everyone in our community, and are on: Work, employment and COVID-19; Economy, finance and COVID-19; and Business, trade and COVID-19.

For their contribution to this important work, we wanted to take a moment to thank:
