A World Pandemic Research Network has been launched

The pandemic will have massive societal and human consequences. All around the world, researchers have set up projects to make sense of what happens and to generate knowledge to better cope with the impending challenges, including projects from the social sciences and the humanities. There is a pressing need to get a global view of who does what and how, to facilitate sharing, collaboration, capitalization, transfer, and to limit errors, redundancies.
As a response, the World Pandemic Research Network (WPRN) has just been launched

The World Pandemic Research Network (WPRN) has been launched with the support of the European Alliance of Social Sciences and Humainites (EASSH), as well as of several international scientific networks, scientific societies and institutions worldwide. It offers a searchable global directory of research projects, surveys and initiatives about the societal and human impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Registered projects get their own webpage which presents the project. It enables other researchers and stakeholders to get in touch and to follow and cite project updates or pre-publications. The directory of projects is searchable by area, discipline, type of project and content.

The registration is free. This directory is accessible on www.wprn.org.
