Following a call from the UK government to supply the NHS with ventilators in March 2020, Dick Elsy FREng, Chief Executive of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, assembled a consortium of 33 UK industrial, technology and engineering businesses. The consortium brought together expertise from across the aerospace, automotive, motorsport and medical sectors to deliver over 13,000 ventilators in around three months. Listen to some of the key players revisit their experiences, discuss lessons they have learned, and what they have taken forward for rapid innovation and scaleup in their day jobs.
