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.

See our Global Covid-19 page for international resources, including funding and worldwide initiatives.
