Scientific Pandemic Insights group on Behaviour

During the COVID-19 outbreak, several members of the HPRU supported SAGE and its behavioural science subgroup, SPI-B. Three papers written by SPI-B in 2020 and sent to the Cabinet Office have been uploaded below. Although they were produced by the SPI-B group, and not the HPRU, because these papers were not discussed at the main SAGE meeting they are not presented on the SAGE website. SPI-B have asked us to host them here in the interests of transparency.
