These include contributions from Peter Piot, the Director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, on learning lessons from epidemics; Ulrike Felt, Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the University of Vienna, on striking a balance between curiosity-driven research and research that has a clear impact on the public; as well as diverse case-studies from other foundations.
