Regarding the pandemics impacts and response, we believe that the Brazilian case, given its diversity, persistent inequality and continental dimensions, can bring insights and lessons that will be useful to both poor and rich countries. In short, FGV Social will process multiple sources of information in order to assess all policies and actions implemented in Brazil to diminish the pandemics’ negative impacts, especially on vulnerable groups such as the elderly, individuals with morbidities, through social distancing etc, besides proposing solutions to improve or change them. Some of the expected outcomes of the research partnership are the following: i) Empirical data diagnosis describing the reality of the vulnerable population before and after the pandemics in Brazil and elsewhere using fresh sources of microdata (e.g. first-hand assessment on poverty and inequality changes and the identification of new behavioural and perceptions patterns). ii) Estimating the coverage and effectiveness of the government measures taken to mitigate the pandemics’ effects, in addition to propose upgrades, complementary policies and empirical experiments. iii) Impact the public opinion through the diffusion of our previous research results in a wide and friendly data set with interactive maps, rankings, tables and simulators based on statistical models are available in the internet at: https://cps.fgv.br/en/covid-impacts For more information and for contacting FGV Social, feel free to e-mail Marcelo Neri, the Centre’s Director, at marcelo.neri@fgv.br. The Centre for Bureaucracy Studies (NEB) is a research group at FGV that analyses public policies by considering the public servants that conceive them in practice. During the coronavirus pandemics, NEB has conducted research to understand the effects of the pandemics on frontline workers from the areas of health, social assistance and security, drawing from surveys and interviews and collecting data with more than 10000 frontline workers throughout Brazil to assess how the pandemics has altered work practices and how frontline workers have experienced these changes. Besides that, NEB has also analysed the effects of the pandemics on gender, with a focus on female health workers. For more information and for contacting NEB, feel free to e-mail Gabriela Lotta, Professor at Public Administration at FGV and NEB’s Coordinator, at the address gabriela.lotta@fgv.br.

Specialisation and expertise
SHINE's main goal is to promote inclusive societies for all. This includes gender, race, age, personal opinions and lifestyles, literacy, environment and sustainability, with shared responsibility between all citizens and within democratic values. This is not restricted to awareness raising, advocating for the most fragile citizens or calling up the public attention to all the needs for extra care and specific interventions. What we really foster is to help imagining a society that is already built taking into consideration the different needs of all citizens and creating holistic solutions that can help them to be happy and have a fulfilled life. In this concept we include: • strengthening organisations roles and initiatives that enhance inclusion, active and participatory citizenship, human rights, health and care for the frailest, quality education and training. • promoting entrepreneurship, sustainable innovation and market outreach, through targeted impacts on different ecosystem layers. • directly engaging with stakeholders, end-users and citizens in co-creating, experimenting and validating innovative ideas and products, favouring citizen involvement in public decision-making. • creating training materials and tools that promote lifelong learning and self-development, peer-learning and enhanced literacy and skills in different target groups. • advancing knowledge on age-friendly, inclusive, green and tech-savvy societies, promoting research and publications on these themes. • on a higher level, working in strategies, policies and participatory approaches that lead to a better democratic process, empowering citizens and engaging the whole cycle of stakeholders. Bringing innovation, digital solutions, social inclusion and a greener environment is often mainly dependent of policy change. With all the differences between regions, countries and public systems, one size does not fit all. Policy change requires a complex, bureaucratic and long process, implies connecting a broad network of actors and moreover, implies finding public commitments, which is not simple or easy. SHINE’s team has a solid experience and a wide network of contacts both in national and international contexts, that ensure the better way through to build policy claims. Although this is not the core focus of SHINE, the creation, development or adaptation of simple IT solutions is also one of our key assets. Whenever it makes sense to provide an integrated solution for a societal challenge that can be adequately addressed by a digital product, e.g. an app, a game or a platform, SHINE has the expertise to deliver it too. What are the gains? We can talk both languages and approach the different worlds - technological, societal and research and bridge the gap that so many times makes innovation fail in the final run. Key areas of expertise • Ethical excellence • Co-creation and stakeholder engagement, citizen science, RRI • Policy recommendations • Training, literacy and citizen empowerment • Societal impact analysis • Dissemination and outreach • Entrepreneurship and sustainable innovation • Health and digital solutions • Data sharing governance

Turkish Academy of Sciences (TÜBA) has been helping and promoting a Sustainable and Resilient Recovery from COVID-19, as a national science academy of Turkey. TÜBA has also conducted various scientific research from the beginning of the global outbreak. Honor, Principal, and Associate members of TÜBA have taken place in the Scientific Council of Turkey for struggling with COVID-19 and in many different projects related to this pandemic. The main principle of TÜBA is multi-disciplinary and thematic methods in scientific and academic works. To do that, it has promoted the publishing of many generic works in various scientific fields. While we are aware of the global damage of this pandemic, TÜBA started its scientific works for informing people with scientific knowledge in this digitally polluted era. Misinformation in social media and similar channels has negatively affected the struggle with the COVID-19 Pandemic. At this point, TÜBA helped to contribute to reliable data flow through scientific reports, books, and information sharing through social media accounts. Firstly, TÜBA published “The Assessment Report on COVID-19 Global Outbreak” on 17 April 2020. The report has been updated six times periodically in Turkish. The latest version of the report has been translated, published in English, and shared with partner academies without losing time. Transparency and reaching the information have been priorities for our Academy. Secondly, the book namely "Reflections on the Pandemic in the Future of the World" has been published in Turkish and English as the first Post-Corona book in Turkey. There are projections for a wide range of post-epidemic periods, from healthcare to education, information technologies to political science, economics to international relations, trade to Philosophy, artificial intelligence studies, sociological analysis, Environment and agriculture, space, and polar studies. Thirdly, “TÜBA Report on Climate Change and Public Health in Turkey” has been published in Turkish and English. It has comprehensively analyzed the situation of Turkey and in vital areas such as Sustainable Development, Climate Change, and Public Health. Fourthly, “TÜBA COVID 19 – Global Outbreak: Report on Judicial Changes and Interactions” has been published in Turkish and English. The report analyses the effects of the COVID–19 Outbreak on Constitutional Law, Administrative Law, Penal Law, Tax Law, International Law, Civil Law, Commercial Law, Labor and Social Security Law, Enforcement and Bankruptcy Law in five chapters. All these reports and books were prepared with help of the following scientific experts including experts from TÜBA, Working Groups of Academy such as Cancer, Food and Nutrition and Sustainable Development, Finance and Environment Working Group, TÜBA Young Academy, and Coronavirus Scientific Committee. Scientists and academicians worked together on these reports for ensuring to receive clear and accurate information about the pandemic in Turkey.
