Coronavirus

Many sectors are working tirelessly to help our loved ones and keep Britain’s economy moving during the coronavirus pandemic. We are aware of the national effort and personal sacrifices many are making on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.

We want to use our platform and social media channels to shine a light on our national heroes and share keyworkers stories. We would particularly like to tell the stories of colleagues working on the coronavirus pandemic in engineering.

You can use this form to share your story whilst also providing us with a quote alongside a photo of you in your work environment, plus a self-filmed video of you in the workplace.

How you can volunteer

If you're an engineer wondering how you can support the fight against COVID-19 on an individual basis - we can help! In this rapidly evolving situation, Parliament needs quick access to researchers who can provide expert insights relating to both Coronavirus and its impacts. To speed up the process of accessing the appropriate expertise, the Government are creating a COVID-19 Outbreak Expert Database.

Community

Our global community are discussing the engineering and technology solutions to COVID-19.  If you wish to contribute to these conversations head over to our community platform.

Social

We are regularly posting the latest updates through our social channels.  Join us there.

Responding to COVID-19: Monitoring Vulnerable Patients and Remote Diagnostics

This webinar examined a range of existing solutions to address challenges associated with the built environment, particularly in the home, in monitoring often complex health conditions, and remote diagnostics.


Responding to COVID-19: Care Homes and Community Care

We know the impact of COVID-19 is particularly acute for many older people and those with long term conditions. Many have been required to shield for months.


Responding to COVID-19: Healthy Living and Housing

Engineers and technologists have a significant role to play providing knowledge and expertise in responding to the challenges of COVID-19.


COVID-19: Lessons learnt with an international lens

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a global problem, but governments have been tackling it in different ways. Although there has been some success in this, there have unfortunately been failures too. It is only by collecting data and sharing information that we can learn good practice in fighting epidemics. Digital technology has also developed rapidly in tackling the pandemic during this time period. But how can we become more effective in fighting the virus? And what role is digital technology playing in flattening the curve?


COVID-19: A Turning Point for Technology

The COVID-19 pandemic has stimulated change in the way we work. Many more people are working from home and companies have sought technological solutions. Video conferencing systems, VPNs and other such technology have become increasingly common. Will this be a permanent change? And is this a positive in the world of pandemics?


AI and Engineering for Healthcare Crises: Rapid Response Strategies for Covid-19

Take a look at how AI can inform healthcare responses and what its role might be in mitigating the #COVID-19 crisis. You’ll learn about the mathematics of COVID-19 growth, how solutions can be applied quickly, ways to evaluate which solutions are working, why conflicting views arise and how to deploy the best ideas.


AI for Drug Discovery in the Epidemic Era

This webinar examines how AI and bioengineering are changing the drug discovery process and the economics of creating new medicines; and whether these principles can be used to discover a solution to COVID-19.
