The UK Pandemic Ethics Accelerator and Pandemic and Beyond seek to jointly commission a substantial piece of ethics research from an external academic(s) to support their current inquiries.
This piece of work will look at all of the ethics and data-handling research produced by projects in the Pandemic and Beyond portfolio. The envisaged output, a meta-analysis and ethics review should investigate the policy recommendations of this portfolio, resulting in a policy briefing document based on the portfolio, with a deadline of the end of February 2022. Proposals and expressions of interest should be submitted by Friday 17th December, and the successful applicant will be informed on Thursday 23rd December.
Pandemic and Beyond brings together over 70 teams of researchers across the UK who are exploring the wide-ranging impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and looking for solutions to these impacts. It comprises three clusters within its overall portfolio of projects: Ethics, Law, and Governance; Arts, Culture, and the Creative Industries; and Public Health, Communications, and Society.
