This high-profile event brings together four senior academics from across the University of Cambridge who have all been advising policy-makers during the Covid-19 pandemic. The speakers will draw on their extensive experience of advising and being consulted by policy-makers, and will reflect on some of the lessons, debates and controversies associated with governmental responses to the pandemic. And they will consider what this episode tells us about the relationship between science, evidence and public policy in times of crisis.
