Overview

 

As the UK emerges from lockdown, work has begun to rebuild our battered economy in a way that saves and creates jobs, that empowers innovation and that incorporates the resilience necessary to cope with future threats. The engineering community will play an important role in this post-pandemic world.

  • So how can engineering revitalise our economy?
  • How can we build on the innovative spirit and collaborative effort in the UK’s engineering sector that saw the rapid development of ventilators and PPE?
  • What help should government provide to the engineering industry and SMEs?
  • And how will social distancing and remote working influence engineering projects that rely on team work?
  • Lockdown has also given us a glimpse of a lower-carbon world. How can we reboot the economy in a way that builds a lower-carbon future?
