SET-C (Science in Emergencies Tasking – COVID)

The Royal Society has established SET-C (Science in Emergencies Tasking – COVID-19) to draw on the expertise of our Fellows and others to respond to requests for rapid science advice on topics relevant to tackling the pandemic. The group was initially convened in response to a request from the Government Office for Science but will also look to the wider scientific community for issues where rapid expert analysis may be useful.

SET-C’s published rapid reviews include:
