Collaborator Contribution The partners helped identify speakers to attend, identified 2 academics to help develop the event and helped to promote the event.
Impact This event was multi-disciplinary as the Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative brings modelling expertise from a diverse range of disciplines to support the pandemic modelling community already working on Coronavirus (COVID-19). It was delivered in partnership with JUNIPER - a UKRI funded consortium that comprises epidemiological modellers and statisticians across seven universities whose work feeds directly into government scientific advice channels such as SPI-M and SAGE. Following on from the November 2021 event series, this virtual workshop aimed to bring together the relevant scientific communities (epi-modellers and economic epidemiologists) to work on addressing current problems in modelling behaviour and its epidemiological, economic and societal implications for the COVID-19 pandemic. The following four problems were presented and potential solutions discussed. • Determining optimal interventions during pandemics - how do we define the appropriate objective function? • From pandemic to endemicity: is behaviour over or underweighted in modelling the COVID-19 pandemic? • Policy trade-offs between lives and livelihoods: how can we better target policies so as to shift out the policy frontier? • Behaviour and the Dynamics of Epidemics

This workshop focused on the use of quantitative modelling approaches to understand the evolutionary implications of vaccination programmes. Such approaches are key to developing optimal vaccination strategies and understanding which subgroups in society should be prioritised for vaccination against COVD-19. The aim of these 2 afternoon sessions was to understand the potential implications of different vaccination strategies on the evolutionary dynamics of COVID-19. A key goal of this event was to build links between epidemic modellers and the wider modelling community with interests in COVID-19, such as within-host modelling teams - including, but not limited to members of RAMP-initiated projects.

Collaborator Contribution The partners helped identify speakers to attend helped to promote the event. Some CCIMI researchers spoke at the event.
Impact This workshop ran over three days and followed on from four previous events which took place over the last 2 years. It formed part of a programme of work with Dstl and PA Consulting which began in 2019 and which seeks to apply mathematics to challenges in the electromagnetic environment (EME). This three-day study group gave participants the opportunity to explore a number of new challenges in depth during break-out sessions with the expectation that innovative maths led approaches will arise. The majority of the participants who came to the first meeting in January 2020 had not worked on problems of this type before and indeed many people had not worked on electromagnetics. This is fully aligned with the primary aim of this initiative to enable new thinking to come into this exciting field and why we strive towards development and establishment of a joined up multi-disciplinary UK community for this area.

Contributions from other stakeholders included areas such as transport, retail, urban environments, local policy making and the wider societal implications such as in urban poverty and inequalities. This two-day science meeting brought together two longer term research activities - urban analytics and human dynamics in small spaces. These RAMP-initiated projects are inter-related and differ mainly in terms of geographical scale. This event therefore helped fulfil a key aim to maintain strong communication links between them, as well as extending to other relevant communities around COVID-19. It sought to continue to gain further insights as lockdown restrictions were loosened in order to provide supporting evidence and assistance to the scientists advising the government on national and local policy responses using urban analytics and spatial modelling. There are important implications for extending these models to embrace key social and economic issues that result from the pandemic and will be explored through future workshops.

Impact This event was multi-disciplinary as the Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative brings modelling expertise from a diverse range of disciplines to support the pandemic modelling community already working on Coronavirus (COVID-19). It was delivered in partnership with JUNIPER - a UKRI funded consortium that comprises epidemiological modellers and statisticians across seven universities whose work feeds directly into government scientific advice channels such as SPI-M and SAGE. It highlighted the need for optimal vaccination strategies, which can accommodate complex factors such as the strength of each vaccine effect, as well as population dynamics. There are huge complexities for instance around who to vaccinate first. It took into account such complexities and intrinsically linked issues of who to target with the vaccine and how this then fits within a global context. It considered important factors such as the effects of variants which are still emerging and issues around vaccine sharing. Scientists from a number of disciplines as well as the mathematical sciences presented talks highlighting the latest state-of-the-art research which can contribute to modelling optimal vaccination strategies. Important modelling approaches including optimal control theory and game theory amongst others were presented.

Impact This event was multi-disciplinary as the Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative brings modelling expertise from a diverse range of disciplines to support the pandemic modelling community already working on Coronavirus (COVID-19). It was developed in partnership with V-KEMS (Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences) - a partnership of senior mathematical academics and stakeholders which was set up in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the aim to identify a range of virtual approaches to help address challenges from business and industry, the third sector, and other groups outside academia. It brought mathematical scientists and other disciplines together to solve challenges faced by the hospitality and leisure sector as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It helped to use mathematics as a tool to help solve the particular challenges hotels, restaurants and leisure facilities, such as cinemas, gyms and museums, are facing as a result of the pandemic. Unlike in previous study groups where the main focus was on modelling the spread of the infection, the theme of this event was about recovery from the pandemic with more of a focus on dealing with the operational difficulties and economic implications which have arisen. The study group addressed the following three areas of concern: • Ventilation of indoor facilities • Audience/customer risk perception • Scheduling/resource management. Five tailored short reports have been supplied to those who highlighted their challenges - UK Hospitality, University of Cambridge Sports Centre, Royal Opera House, Shakespeare's Globe and Independent Cinema Office.

Collaborator Contribution The partners helped identify speakers to attend to talk about the particular EME challenges and helped to develop the Programme. They facilitated some of the discussion sessions.
Impact This workshop ran over two short days and followed on from three previous events which took place over the last 18 months. It was held in a hybrid format - with some delegates joining in person and others remotely. It formed part of a programme of work with Dstl and PA Consulting which began in 2019 and which seeks to apply mathematics to challenges in the electromagnetic environment (EME). This event reported back on what progress had been made and specifically on research endeavours and projects which have emanated from the previous research scoping workshops and study groups. It presented a number of new research challenges. The majority of the participants who came to the first meeting in January 2020 had not worked on problems of this type before and indeed many people had not worked on electromagnetics. This is fully aligned with the primary aim of this initiative to enable new thinking to come into this exciting field and why we strive towards development and establishment of a joined up multi-disciplinary UK community for this area.

This workshop focused on understanding the different factors which affect the generation time of COVID-19, as well as the interaction between these, which is important to be able to better assess what aspects of new variants may be of concern. The aim of this event was to hear talks related to each of the factors affecting the generation time, to try to understand current work and thinking in each area and in turn to try to identify how these may be more joined up. A key goal of this event was to build links between epidemic modellers and the wider modelling community with interests in COVID-19, such as within-host modelling teams - including, but not limited to members of RAMP-initiated projects.

This event was multi-disciplinary as the Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) initiative brings modelling expertise from a diverse range of disciplines to support the pandemic modelling community already working on Coronavirus (COVID-19). Contributions from other stakeholders included ASM Global, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Church of England and Bath Rugby Club. It was developed in partnership with V-KEMS (Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences) - a partnership of senior mathematical academics and stakeholders which was set up in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the aim to identify a range of virtual approaches to help address challenges from business and industry, the third sector, and other groups outside academia. It brought mathematical scientists and other disciplines together to solve end user-defined challenges. The study group covered the spectrum of large events and heard from organisers who were running a variety of events - large indoor gatherings; large outdoor festival type gatherings and large outdoor events where attendees were seated. Researchers modelled the impact of queuing geometries, staggering arrival times, signage, and some process of pre-checking to provide insight for the event organisers. Since the event, participants have collaborated to develop a working paper https://gateway.newton.ac.uk/sites/default/files/asset/doc/2109/COVID19%20Safety%20in%20Large%20Events%20Report.pdf

It brought mathematical scientists and other disciplines together to solve challenges faced by the hospitality and leisure sector as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This study group looked at supporting Local Authorities and 2 challenges were explored - Supporting Local Authorities, Landlords and Tenants in Preventing Homelessness Post Covid-19 and Supporting Local Authorities, Businesses and High-Streets Post Covid-19. A number of potential solutions were developed over the three days and a summary report has since been published. https://gateway.newton.ac.uk/sites/default/files/asset/doc/2202/VSG13_COMMUNITIES_OF_THE_FUTURE.pdf
