Pandemic and Beyond

University of Exeter, Arts and Humanities Research Council.

'Pandemic & Beyond' is an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) umbrella programme coordinated by the University of Exeter. The project brings together over 70 leading academic studies from across the UK investigating the impact of Covid-19 on several policy areas and communicates them to policy makers. ​ Culture Commons provided a wraparound service to the core delivery team through the project lifecycle, ensuring emerging findings were communicated to the right decision makers, at the right time. We co-produced a series of high level webinars and roundtables, bringing to the table UK Government Ministers, senior politicians, officials across the Cabinet Office, No. 10, Department for Health and Social Care and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. ​ We advised on the development of a virtual policy hub where researchers and policymakers can meet, find out about each of the studies, and work together to share expertise and resources for maximum policy impact.
