A wide range of organisations have been involved in supporting innovators deliver solutions to problems posed by the pandemic – from making sure that funding was available, products were safe and regulated, and that the right people were connected. These members of the innovation ecosystem were key enablers allowing engineers to deliver solutions – from ventilators and PPE, to field hospitals and social distancing technologies – and will have uniquely useful insights and cross-cutting experiences. Join us to discuss how these organisations think we can take learning for rapid innovation and scaling from this period forward and apply it to other pressing challenges.
