Demonstrating the role of the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) during the COVID-19 pandemic - tell your research story!

*Please note if you already submitted your research for consideration in the summer 2020, you do not need to submit it again, unless there are any new, additional findings.*

Are you conducting research related to the COVID-19 pandemic or know someone who is? The Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences wants to share your story.

Social sciences and humanities researchers play an important role in helping Canada navigate these unprecedented times and will continue to inform government, industry and the public’s decisions in the months and years ahead as we emerge from the crisis and deal with its aftermath. The Federation is currently undertaking communications activities to raise awareness of this vital role and reinforce the value of our disciplines to Canada and the world.

Please take a few minutes to complete this brief survey about your research related to the pandemic. We will draw from survey responses and any follow-up research to develop content for various communications activities.

Thank you for your work in support of the well-being of Canadians and people around the world, and for your participation in this important initiative.
