Due to the high volume of proposals already scheduled in the program, we will not be able to accept more open panels.
Earlier this year, the United Nations launched a global consultation to mark its 75th anniversary, at a time of great challenges, none greater than the worst global health crisis in its history. Through surveys and dialogues, the UN surveyed people about their hopes and fears for the future in an ambitious effort to understand their expectations for international cooperation and the UN in particular. This was also its largest survey to date on priorities for recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

1. With less than a month to go before the U.S. election, the Pew Research Center is following the main public opinion trends in an effort to understand which way the wind is blowing. Not much has changed in recent weeks, Joe Biden maintains his polling lead over Donald Trump, including on most major issues and key personal traits, and in overall voter preferences. An absolute majority of registered voters (57%) say they are very or somewhat confident in Biden’s ability to handle the public health impact of the coronavirus, while 40% express a similar level of confidence in Trump. Also observed was the trend reflecting a decrease in attention to the pandemic among Republican voters before Trump tested positive for the coronavirus. Further analyses are available – and continuously updated – on the PRC website (Research Institute on the IPSAPortal).
2. Founded in 2004, The European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC) is an European Union agency whose mission is to strengthen Europe's defenses against infectious diseases. Core functions include surveillance, epidemic intelligence, and response. The ECDC website provides a range of updated data on the COVID-19 pandemic, including an epidemic curve and contagion rates, geographic distribution within Europe and worldwide, to go along with surveillance reports and risk assessments. Population data is based on the World Bank data catalogThe site also features interactive situation dashboards with a chart, map and table view, thus allowing users to browse enhanced data on age, gender, hospitalization and admission to intensive care. This forms part of the European Union response to COVID-19 (Institutions on the IPSAPortal).
3. Enforced lockdowns in response to COVID-19 have put the spotlight back on open education resources, lifelong learning and wellness. The ambitious Europeana project aims to make Europe’s cultural and scientific resources accessible to all for enjoyment, education and research. Europeana works with thousands of European archives, libraries and museums, and its database provides free access to millions of digital items. You can browse the collections based on topics, scroll through the teacher section, or use the straightforward search function with detailed filters (date, media type, license etc). A section on wellness pairs well with other open resources on MOOC platforms that highlight the importance of mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic (Library Catalogues on the IPSAPortal).
