Enhancing modelling impact through collaboration: The case study of SARS-CoV-2 infection in UK university students

An all-day event, held at The Royal Society, that brought together the wide community of modelling scientists involved in the COVID-19 pandemic response to recognise their contributions. The schedule had five main sessions.
Sessions 1 and 2 consisted of talks by early career researchers across modelling disciplines relevant to the pandemic response. Topics included epidemic modelling, work on air-flow and human behaviour.
Session 3 had further contributions from early career researchers in the form of (pre-recorded) flash-talks and an accompanying poster session.
Session 4 was a policy-focused panel discussion exploring the lessons from the pandemic for how the scientific community can respond to future emergencies.
The fifth and final session was held in the evening, with a series of public talks from three invited speakers:
- Making sense of pandemic dynamics – Professor Adam Kucharski (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)
- Environmental factors in virus transmission - Professor Chris Budd OBE (University of Bath)
- The path from science to policy – Dr Louise Dyson (University of Warwick)
Myself and Emily Nixon presented a joint talk on our research modelling the epidemiological implications of staggering the return of students to Higher Education settings in the UK in January 2021.
