Launched last year as a repository for research about the pandemic, the hub brings together resources created by fellows of the Academy of Social Science and other social scientists.

It also offers access to portals and hubs developed by universities, think tanks, learned societies and other research institutions.

The second phase so far includes articles by Professor Jonathan Portes on building back better economics after the pandemic; Professor Kavita Vedhara et al on how language has influenced UK pandemic outcomes; and Professor Linda Hantrais on social policy perspectives on Covid-19.
