ESRC Covid Grants Projects

Covid-19 Grants

The ESRC funds a number of projects carrying out Covid-related research. ReWAGE hosted a workshop in January 2022 for all the projects to meet and update each other on progress. Each of the projects produced a short Policy Brief summarising their activity, which we have published on this page.

How ReWAGE is funded

Initial funding for ReWAGE was provided by Warwick and Leeds Universities. Core funding is provided by the Economic and Social Research Council, which is the major public funder of economic and social research in the UK.
