COVID-19 Seminar Series

The Fuse Covid-19 Seminar Series invites speakers to present on the public health impact and response to the pandemic across North East England, to think creatively about the way forward in public health, and highlight the importance of knowledge exchange for sharing learning in responding to coronavirus.

As part of our core mission to translate research evidence into policy and practice, the seminars aim to create a safe space in which academics, practitioners and policy makers can critically reflect together on the challenges and opportunities involved in knowledge exchange related to public health before, during and after the pandemic, to prompt debate and learning on how practices and research can be improved.

Each seminar is led by one, or more, of the Fuse research programmes and will be held online via a video conferencing platform.

The views expressed in the seminars are exclusively those of the presenter(s).
