Research to Policy Engagement Initiative: Local efforts to manage the pandemic with IDSS professor Cathy Wu

April 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Prof. Cathy Wu, IDSS will join us for a discussion on ongoing local institutional efforts to manage the Covid-19 crisis and potential collaborations with research groups at MIT. Wu will share details on IDSS contributions so far in municipal response efforts.

If you’d like to join the discussions, please register. The Zoom information will be emailed to you, and will remain the same through the end of the semester.

The Research to Policy Engagement Initiative remains committed to creating a community of researchers who can learn, apply, and contribute to developing best practices in bridging knowledge to action on societal challenges.

Starting April 24, on Fridays at 3-4 pm through the rest of the spring semester, we will hold a virtual gathering that will alternate every other week between (1) informal discussions focused on what we can contribute to IDSS and MIT efforts to respond to COVID-19, including lessons for engaging with policy-makers; and (2) virtual fireside chats with guests who will speak more generally about research to policy engagement issues. We will keep you updated as we figure out further details.
