The UCL European Institute is collecting the personal stories of those who have been in quarantine, self-isolation, and social distancing in Europe during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. We are interested in the personal stories behind the headlines, and hope this project will allow us to paint a portrait of Europe during this difficult and unprecedented time. 

Using the following questions as guidance, please tell us as much or as little as you would like. We are particularly keen to learn how the situation has affected the working and personal lives of researchers, professors, students, and others in academia in Europe.

We plan to share these findings and responses on our website and social media platforms in the form of blog posts. However, we understand that you may not want us to share some elements of your answers -  we plan to share only first names and locations when we do include direct quotes, and will not distribute email addresses. If you would like all or part of your responses to remain completely anonymous, please let us know in the last question of the form. **We will not share any responses without your permission.**

If you would be interested in sharing more of your story in a multimedia format (podcast or video) or writing a post for our blog, please get in touch via european.institute@ucl.ac.uk.
