How might we harness new and innovative technology to meet demand?

We’re seeking ideas from manufacturers, entrepreneurs and innovators about new and emerging technology to meet demand for health and medical equipment and supplies.

Existing supply chains of equipment needed to respond to COVID-19 coronavirus have already been identified and the Government is acting swiftly to leverage these. But we need to be thinking about how we can develop and produce new products, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), in a completely different environment.

You might currently be testing new technologies or materials. Can they be repurposed to help meet demand? We want to know what you can do to contribute and put you in touch with Government agencies.

Continuing to be fragile, and building anti-fragility support structure for government.

By necessity, most government departments operate with bare bones organisational structures, Silos and single points of possible failure are a common thing.  Building in anti-fragility (The ability to cope with dramatic change) into a bare bones structure of silos which is often unwilling to see benefit in change and is under pressure to cut costs not increase them. It is just too hard. So often you don't know what you don't know until it is too late.. (Or at least costly.)  But if say 30...

Saving Money, Reducing Waste of Water in Buildings and Facilities

We should use any investments to improve the efficiency of resource use and improve environmental outcomes. Many businesses and facility managers are too busy (or think the cost of water is too low) to actively track the use of water across their facilities.  Whilst many could try and use the manual water meter provided by the Water Utility and 'read' it on a regular basis, this is often an after-thought. I feel this is more likely to be overlooked as businesses recover from the COVID19...
