Rapid decisions under risk

The UK’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) provides scientific and technical advice to support government decision-makers during emergencies. This project uses SAGE as a case study to analyse the use of expert advice in emergency situations both domestic and international. This includes a theoretical literature review alongside collection of empirical data to assess how: experts are selected, differing viewpoints are translated into action, and uncertainty is communicated.
