APRU Webinar: Collaborating in Crisis: Academic-Governmental Partnerships During COVID-19
With participation from four APRU universities (University of California Los Angeles, University of Sydney, National University of Singapore, and Peking University), the second webinar in the APRU Crisis Management series is led by the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, National University of Singapore, and will focus on: Collaborating in Crisis: Academic-Governmental Partnerships During COVID-19.

The knowledge created within universities and by academic experts can be used to inform policy and government-level decisions; at the same time, the practical experience of leaders and decision-makers can provide insights and case studies for researchers. The relationship between academic departments of Public Health and government has taken a particular significance in many countries during the COVID-19 crisis, and has been managed in different ways depending on the local context and the local evolution of the pandemic. The four universities involved in this webinar are large and renowned institutions in their respective countries, and have navigated the relationship between their expertise in Public Health and the necessity for decisive and timely governmental action in the novel pandemic scenario. This webinar will discuss similarities and differences in approach and experience advising policy-makers during COVID-19; peculiarities of this unprecedented crisis; and lessons learnt that could inform academic-governmental partnerships in future occasions, including but not exclusively in emergency situations.
