The Oxford Covid-19 Government Response Tracker (OxCGRT) is a project that collected information on policy measures to tackle COVID-19 over the years 2020, 2021, and 2022.

Although a substantial body of scientific research on COVID-19 government responses has already been published, many research questions remain unanswered, and the OxCGRT team is continuing research into the impacts and determinants of pandemic policy and working with partners to devise new approaches to data collection that can be deployed quickly in the face of future pandemics or global emergencies.

The OxCGRT Seminar Series is an innovative platform for scholars working on COVID-19 responses, offering an opportunity to present and discuss their ongoing research work as well as to connect with the broader research community. The series will run online every Thursday from 11 April to 30 May at 16:00-17:30 BST.
