How data has shaped the world’s approach to COVID-19

How data has shaped the world’s approach to COVID-19 15 July 2020

FREE online webinar brought to you by the Business and Local Government Data Research Centre.


The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we all use data forever: from tracking Apps, scenario planning, resilience-building and capacity mapping through to using AI to find a vaccine. This panel discussion shines a light on the amazing and unexpected ways data is being used to fight COVID-19.


Our experts will also discuss and share their views on what the future could hold for society and data in the face of pandemics. Plus have your questions answered live by the ESRC Business and Local Government Research Centre’s senior research officers.
