Development and sharing of practice during COVID 19
The R&D community has shown immense flexibility, resilience and skill in managing the research response to COVID-19.
The R&D Forum working group members have been hosting weekly hangouts to review COVID-19 developments, to share innovative practice and to support each other whilst quickly forming a national perspective of the practical issues affecting the development and delivery of COVID-19 research, including how these have changed as the UK-wide response has moved forwards. The groups from across the R&D management, support and leadership community have thus been uniquely placed to provide a meaningful contribution to the development of the national approach and to help with the national policy and guidance being produced. The R&D Forum will continue to support the Department of Health & Social Care and partners across the system to deliver the required COVID-19 research in a speedy and safe manner.
