The Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies (PWIAS) has launched a call for applications to fund new working groups to produce rapid publications in relation to COVID-19. The publications will be published on the PWIAS website prior to being submitted to academic journals, and will aim to influence policy decisions in different areas of society and levels of government. 

International scholars are welcome to apply, with a UBC collaborator. 

Applications must take an innovative, unconventional approach to understanding and addressing the challenges posed by COVID-19 and society’s response to it.

Application must be two pages maximum, and must include:

  • Title, proposed start date, and target date for completion of the publication
  • Names and affiliations for all working group members, including their areas of expertise
  • Summary of the proposal (maximum 1 page or 500 words)
  • Budget description
