Covid-19

Covid-19 continues to be present in our lives at home and at work.  KTN is ideally placed to work for the greater good and has already demonstrated its powerful connections through work on the Vaccines Taskforce, the Ventilator Challenge and advising the government on social distancing.  We can bring together sectors to work on supply chain issues and our network can be a source of innovative solutions and approaches.

KTN continues to support funding calls by signposting our network to them and by holding online briefing events.  Covid-specific calls that are relevant to our audience will be listed on our main funding page.

As the pandemic became more widespread, KTN curated links to a wide variety of initiatives, resources, specifications and international links. These continue to be updated.
