RAMP Continuity Network: COVID-19 Scientific Engagement Meetings

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course

Description of Activity

Participated in the Scientific Engagement Meeting #2: "Environmental and Aerosol Transmission".

The Newton Gateway is playing a key role in the RAMP Continuity Network (a UKRI funded project) and will deliver a series of meetings, workshops and virtual study groups. The aim of this will be to ensure scientific networking to help maintain strong communication links among RAMP-initiated projects, and further develop links between these and the wider modelling community around COVID-19.

Better understanding of the transmission of COVID-19 is a key factor in managing risk and designing practical interventions. With the reduction of lockdown restrictions over the next few months, insights into areas such as the role of ventilation and the impact of people moving around within buildings are particularly timely.

This three-day science meeting will review existing work and identify where further research is most urgently needed. The meeting will include a standalone public-facing component providing an accessible overview of the latest science, alongside scientific talks and discussion sessions targeting active researchers.
