GloPID-R network partners launch survey to establish COVID-19 research priorities
The Global Health Network in partnership with the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and UK Collaborative on Development Research (UKCDR) have launched a survey to seek the opinion of researchers globally as to the top priorities for COVID-19 research in their country and region.
International research funding organisations were quick to respond in launching funding calls to address the COVID-19 outbreak. Further calls continue to be planned worldwide. The Global Health Network in partnership with the African Academy of Sciences and UK Collaborative on Development Research have combined the research priorities set out by the WHO in the WHO Coordinated Global Research Roadmap: COVID-19, March 2020 with additional priorities identified by the African Academy of Sciences with African based researchers and are asking researchers across the globe to participate in the survey to give their opinion on these priorities.
This will provide vital information for international funding and policy bodies to ensure that funding is directed to the most critical priority research questions.The findings of this collaborative initiative will be shared openly.
The deadline to complete this survey is May 18 at 10:00 am (UTC)
