Register to join Episode 34 'Behavioural science and the pandemic' on Zoom here.

During the course of the pandemic, we have heard a lot about the importance of behavioural science in controlling the spread of the virus.

This webinar brings together two central figures from the world of BI, David Halpern, Chief Executive of the Behavioural Insights Team, and Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology at UCL, and a member of SAGE and Independent SAGE, to discuss the contributions of behavioural sciences in the fight against COVID-19.

Chaired by Professor Sir Simon Wessely, the discussion will touch on understanding behaviours in the transmission route as a basis for intervention, examples of well-worked interventions, limitations of certain messaging, and how behavioural science will inform the next stage of the pandemic.
