UKRI Coronavirus Hub
Coronavirus has changed life for everyone and will be a factor for the foreseeable future. In our Coronavirus Hub we gather all the key information you may need about how we at UKRI are responding to the pandemic. This includes guidance for our funded communities and details of grant calls, as well as showcasing the work we are driving forwards with researchers and innovators tackling the challenges of COVID-19 across the UK and around the world.
UKRI has funded projects to address the key challenges of coronavirus, from understanding how the disease spreads, its impact on our bodies and how to treat it to the widespread consequences that everyone is experiencing - from isolation, mental health and economic consequences. We are also supporting innovative businesses to create new ways of working.
Our research is informing the policy decisions being made, helping to limit the outbreak and to protect life and also to shape our recovery and rebuilding for the future.
