NSF-Mercury Project Partnership
The Mercury Project is proud to join with the National Science Foundation in a path-breaking $20M partnership to support social and behavioral science R&D designed to identify interventions with the potential to increase vaccination demand and other health behaviors grounded in science-based public health guidance. This innovative partnership will support research teams seeking to evaluate online or offline interventions to increase Covid-19 vaccination demand and other positive health behaviors, including by targeting the producers and/or consumers of inaccurate health information and/or by increasing confidence in reliable health information. We welcome proposals for evaluations sited in the United States, Africa, Asia, and/or Latin America and the Caribbean.
