RSE Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission
An online discussion examining how effectively data and evidence has been used and communicated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, raising issues such as:
- How science works;
- How data, evidence and science are communicated;
- How the media decide what to cover and what to omit;
- Dealing with complexity and uncertainty;
- How ‘following the science’ and the press portrayal of scientific research affects policy decisions.
