CONQUEST study webinar, 8 June 2021, 1pm

For the past year, we have been collecting data on the contacts, behaviour and symptoms of staff and students at the University of Bristol, which provide important information for policy makers and mathematical modellers on a key population during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are holding an online webinar event for our participants and anyone else interested in our research, to present our results from the past year, discuss our future plans and to answer your questions.
