On 17-18 November 2021, researchers from across the PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study on transmission and environment (managed by HSE) will come together in person for the programme’s first conference.
They will be joined at the Manchester International Conference Centre by policymakers and stakeholders to shape and engage with the latest science on how the COVID-19 virus transmits, and how to stop it.
You are invited to join us for day two of the conference, which will enable invited policymakers and stakeholders from across government and industry to engage directly with leading scientists on the latest transmission research, improving their understanding of how to apply the science to their own policy and operational challenges.
They will also have the opportunity to ensure our researchers understand these real-world challenges, feeding in their own evidence needs to help shape the research agenda.
This event will be taking place in a socially distanced manner, so places for in-person attendance are limited – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a representative of a PEROSH member organisation and would like to do so.
Conference sessions and presentations will also be livestreamed free and online for the benefit of all interested parties, including researchers, policymakers, businesses, and the broader public. The plenary sessions on day 2 (18 November) will be open to all via an online livestream, so please register via the Eventbrite page for external attendees if you would like to attend online.
