In April 2020, at the height of the first wave of COVID-19 across Europe, academics at Alliance Manchester Business School and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at The University of Manchester launched The Manchester Briefing, a UK funded research project influencing global and local recovery and renewal strategies.
A year on from when the crisis first struck, this special event is aimed at those who are interested in hearing how academic research can have a real-world impact through the application of tools, theories and social science.
The speakers will explore the key lessons and themes that have emerged from the crisis, talk through the societal benefits of this important and timely academic work, and share their views on the big questions that the world faces right now. What makes Covid-19 so different from other disasters? What we are learning from global responses and early recovery efforts? And how do you develop specific guidance on recovery, renewal, resilience?
After the presentations attendees will then be given the opportunity to engage with our panellists through a Q&A session.
