Contact-tracing apps as a way out of the lockdown? St Anne’s Fellow, Johannes Abeler, will share his research as part of St Anne’s Online

Contact-tracing apps are high on the news agenda in the UK today as a trial begins on the Isle of Wight, with plans mooted to roll it out soon to the rest of the UK. 

If you’d like to speak to an expert about the issues involved and whether these apps could represent a way out of the lockdown, St Anne’s Fellow, Professor Johannes Abeler, will be available to answer your questions tonight at 7pm as part of St Anne’s Online. 

Johannes’s research explores the acceptability of app-based contact tracing and the feasible exit strategies for the UK to come out of the lockdown.

The event will take place via Facebook Live from the St Anne’s College Page
