In response to COVID-19, INGSA has created www.INGSA.org/covid as an information hub on the evidence and governance issues. We are looking for contributions from INGSA members with insights on the social and political responses to the situation.
INGSA provides the forum for policy makers, practitioners, national academies, scientific societies, and researchers to share experience, build capacities, and develop theoretical and practical approaches to the use of scientific evidence in informing policy at all levels of government.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical value for effective and integrated science advice mechanisms into all levels of government, particularly in emergencies. Managing the acute response and the recovery will continue to require a range of evidence from the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities.
To assist, INGSA has created a dedicated hub of information related to the science advice and diplomacy issues raised by the pandemic. We are currently looking for contributors from all over the world to provide thinkpieces, resources and events to assist.
The outcomes of this exercise will not only help to inform the global response to the virus, but will also inform INGSA’s existing stream of enquiry into the role of science advice in emergencies.
