Specialisation and expertise
I have a B.Sc in Statistics from Tel-Aviv University in Israel and a PhD in Community Medicine from The University of Hong Kong. I have vast experience with injury coding and classification as well as injury and disaster epidemiology. I enjoy developing instruments, disseminating them and making them into a standard. One such tool was developed to facilitate practically oriented studies of community resilience: The Conjoint Community Resiliency Assessment Measure (CCRAM). Other such tools include the Barel body region by nature of injury matrix (used to better code multiple injury using ICD-9), and the recent Continuous Traumatic Stress Response (CTSR) Scale .

Specialisation and expertise

The high technological complexity of products and services is a feature of the health sector. Therefore, the relationship between the scientific base of universities and institutes and the pharmaceutical industry is a necessary condition for national technological advances in this segment. One strategy already adopted and consolidated by the countries that are at the cutting edge of technological development and that, from the advent of the Innovation Law - Law 10.973/2004 - has been increasingly embraced by Brazilian institutions and Fiocruz is one of the most prominent health institutions from Brazil immersed in the research innovation challenges.

Fiocruz produces, disseminates, and share knowledge and technologies and contributes to the promotion of health and quality of life of the population.  Besides the reduction of social inequalities and the national dynamics of innovation, with the defense of the right to health and full citizenship as central values, it uses science and innovation as the basis of socio-economic development and health promotion.

 COVID 19, HIV-1, HIV-1 / 2, Chagas’ disease, dengue fever, leishmaniasis, leptospirosis, arboviruses, influenza, and many other diseases are under research at Instituto Oswaldo Cruz. Please take a look at the technological showcase in COVID 19, shared in the links to the research work window.

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

Specialisation and expertise

As a Science & Technology Studies scholar and Technology Assessment practitioner, I mostly do qualitative research, including ethnography, qualitative interviews and discourse analysis. I refer to concepts such as epistemic cultures, scientific communities, technoscience, innovation regimes, risk cultures or risk governance. With my online-survey on Covid-19, I was interested in expert opinions from diverse disciplines and countries on side-effects, opportunities and potentials for preparedness pertaining to the current and future pandemics.
