Test and Trace' systems are key components of national responses to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Each country has its own set of measures for testing Covid-19 cases, finding contacts, and isolating and supporting those affected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Concerns that biological weapons will be used has focused attention on the need to develop a capability to independently investigate any allegation of use. The United Nations Secretary-General’s Mechanism is one such tool, and efforts to revitalize and strengthen it have acknowledged a wide range of technical difficulties to overcome. This article...
Article
Full-text available
Problems framed as societal challenges have provided fresh impetus for transdisciplinary research. In response, funders have started programmes aimed at increasing transdisciplinary research capacity. However, current programme evaluations do not adequately measure the skills and characteristics of individuals and collectives doing this research. A...
Preprint
Full-text available
This paper from the SPRU Working Paper Series is about the research capabilities needed to actually do societal challenges. In the paper we describe an evaluative framework with which to assess such capabilities. The framework is operationalised through a three-stage mixed method procedure which evaluates transdisciplinary capabilities as they are...
Article
Full-text available
Research framed to address global, grand and societal challenges has brought fresh impetus to calls by funding agencies for transdisciplinary research. Yet the urgency of such calls is not matched by sufficient knowledge of how to foster and maintain the capabilities to do transdisciplinary work. Significant gaps exist in how to cultivate and maint...
Article
Full-text available
Global health security and universal health coverage have been frequently considered as “two sides of the same coin”. Yet, greater analysis is required as to whether and where these two ideals converge, and what important differences exist. A consequence of ignoring their individual characteristics is to distort global and local health priorities i...
Article
Full-text available
This article contributes to the development of methods for analysing research funding systems by exploring the robustness and comparability of emerging approaches to generate funding landscapes useful for policy making. We use a novel data set of manually extracted and coded data on the funding acknowledgements of 7,510 publications representing UK...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Over the last decade, the desire to address complex societal problems, achieve impact, and create value from working across disciplines has led to an increased emphasis on interdisciplinary research (IDR) among researchers, funders, and higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK (Nurse, 2015; British Academy, 2016). Simultaneously, there has be...

Project
The project looks at the production of 'lessons learned' from the Ebola crisis in West Africa from 2013 to 2016. The project asks two questions; "who is producing what 'lessons learned' from the Ebola crisis?" and "how are so-called 'lessons learned' reports produced in the wake of the Ebola crisis?" The project analyses 266 different documents reporting lessons from the Ebola crisis and reports on semi-structured interviews conducted to gain a picture of how two such documents were produced and used.
