Global Researchers’ Network for COVID-19


The Global Researchers’ Network for COVID-19 focuses on identifying dynamic mechanisms that generated a global pandemic in spreading a virus across communities, organizations, jurisdictions, sectors, and nations. It seeks to understand factors that build collective cognition of risk among whole communities, enabling coordinated action to control a pandemic. It also seeks to explore factors that inhibit such action. The group will model information flows that support collective decision processes.
