Invitation to participate in our survey – The IMPACT of COVID-19 on research
Research Australia is working with its members across the pipeline to compile a comprehensive report for Australian governments to fully understand:
1) the contribution the health and medical research innovation sector is making to the response to COVID-19 and
2) the impact COVID-19 is having on the sector
We continue to collect examples of COVID-19 related research for the first and we thank you for the ongoing contributions you are forwarding.
We now ask for your input to the second focus area. We have designed a brief survey to gain insight into the impact of the pandemic from the viewpoint of researchers and innovators across the whole sector. Please complete the survey and forwarding it to others in your networks ASAP – it will only take 10 to 15 minutes.
We believe it is vital governments fully understand the different effects COVID-19 is having right across our sector and this is your opportunity to contribute. We need them to know about the impact COVID-19 is having on you, your research, and your teams.
At the moment this impact has no visibility – you can help fix this.
The survey is available here.
