Engineering a response to Covid-19

To mark the vital contributions that the UK engineering community has made while fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, the Royal Academy of Engineering recognised exceptional innovations and achievements with the President’s Special Awards for Pandemic Service.

The Royal Academy of Engineering commissioned photographer Jude Palmer to capture images of the 19 awardees. Jude travelled around the country to see how they have helped to make a difference through engineering, from making ventilators to developing new diagnostic tests and manufacturing methods for vaccines.
