CAER are also really proud to be holding a joint conference with Stanford University on the 27th August, 4-6pm. We would love to invite you to join us virtually, and again this will be recorded and shared following the event.


The Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences in partnership with Born in Bradford and the Centre for Applied Education Research cordially invite you to join a virtual conference where we will learn how researchers in the US and UK are tackling these issues. This multidisciplinary conference will bring together researchers, school leaders, and local policy makers from Yorkshire and the Bay Area to share evidence that can inform teachers, children, and their families as we work together to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also provide opportunities for shared evidence generation and collaboration across thematic areas and geographies.
