Eight science communication research projects have been funded by the European Commission since 2018. These projects are a response to one of the European Commission's ‘Science with and for Society' (SwafS) funding calls — “SwafS-19: Taking stock and re-examining the role of science communication.” Together these projects have received almost €10 million in research funding, and each has been affected to some extent by the COVID-19 global pandemic. This paper provides an overview of the eight projects, how they adapted to the challenges caused by the pandemic, and the subsequent implications for science communication policy and research funding.
