Royal Academy of Engineering’s ‘Innovation in a Crisis’ webinar


July 9th, 2020

The Royal Academy of Engineering will be holding an Innovation in a Crisis webinar on Tuesday 14 July 2020 from 5pm-6pm, titled “Inside efforts to make PPE for the frontline”.

The Academy has launched a new online Q&A series, Innovation in a Crisis, to explore the different ways the engineering profession is contributing to the COVID-19 response. It hopes to cover a wide range of topics such as decontamination, the role of artificial intelligence and businesses that pivoted their activities to address the needs of the crisis.

They are being organised jointly by the Academy’s policy and events teams, with a running theme of examining what lessons can be learned from the collaborations, rapid deployment and innovative practices that have resulted.

The events are open to everyone, but may be of particular interest to Academy Fellows, Enterprise Hub members, Academy-funded researchers, National Engineering Policy Centre partners, policy contacts, and corporate partners.

Recordings will be published on the Academy website and social media channels.

The broad themes for the Q&A are rapid manufacture, open source designs, supply chains and standards.
