New report on Engineering a resilient future after COVID-19 published

As the UK emerges from the lockdown, the UK engineering community has a knowledgeable and expert voice to contribute in ensuring future national resilience, emergency preparedness, response and planning conversations, according to a paper published today by the National Engineering Policy Centre (NEPC).

The NEPC is a unified voice for over 40 professional engineering organisations including IOM3, representing 450,000 engineers, a partnership led by the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Engineering a resilient future champions the important role that the engineering community has already played in advising the UK government during the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing on evidence, insights and case studies from across the NEPC partnership, it explains how engineers can transform their ideas into collective advice, minimising the risks and impact of COVID-19 for the UK, to secure a more resilient future.

The paper presents the engineering response in three stages:

  • Lessening the impact
  • Easing the lockdown
  • Building a resilient future

National Engineering Policy Centre (NEPC)

The National Engineering Policy Centre connects policy makers with critical engineering expertise to inform and respond to policy issues of national importance, giving policymakers a route to advice from across the whole profession, and the profession a unified voice on shared challenges. 

The Centre is an ambitious partnership, led by the Royal Academy of Engineering, between 39 different UK engineering organisations representing 450,000 engineers.
