As part of our ESRC Trust and Governance project, IDS has partnered up with a team of international researchers from the ISDCUNU-WIDER  and IGZ on an exciting and very timely research initiative to collect real time data on the coronavirus and its social and economic consequences. The project is called Life with Corona, with an overall aim to build a global knowledge base about how people are dealing with the exceptional situation we currently find ourselves living in.
We invite you to please:
  • Complete the survey
  • Share the survey with your networks, and online on Facebook and Twitter etc. It is now available in a number of languages. 
We hope that the survey will receive many responses from all corners of the globe, and that it will generate interest from the media. 
More about the survey:  Life with Corona includes various modules that allow a comprehensive insight into daily life during the pandemic. Scientifically valid answers to these questions are of critical importance for dealing with the pandemic for maintaining health, nutrition, and social peace around the world. The survey is available in a number of languages and is circulating fast around the world, but we still need your help in ensuring that we get the word out as much as possible. The initiative is led by Professor Tilman Brück from ISDC. Other partners include Leibniz-Institut für Gemüse- und Zierpflanzenbau (IGZ) and UNU-Wider. More information can be found on the ISDC website.
