Facilitating a learning community and disseminating social, behavioral, and economic research on COVID-19
The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), a consortium of more than 750 academic institutions and research organizations, has been selected by the National Institutes of Health to coordinate social, behavioral, and economic research on COVID-19.
ICPSR will work to foster collaboration, innovation, and synergies across COVID-19 social, behavioral, and economic researchers funded by the NIH; will support networking activities to advance research and collaboration in the field and to develop and use harmonized COVID-19 data constructs to support comparability and replicability; and will work to disseminate findings and resources to the research community and the public.
CHRT will support ICPSR and the consortium grantees by developing research briefs, infographics, blogs, and other publications to share research findings, activities, and resources. CHRT will also develop and co-facilitate learning community sessions to allow SBECCC grantees to share practices, ideas, and learnings.
