When the COVID-19 crisis struck, people like you were able to harness their technical ingenuity to help to solve the ventilator shortage. STFC’s technicians, engineers, and scientists were able to more than double the stock of ventilators available to the NHS by helping to deliver 13,437 ventilators as part of Ventilator Challenge UK. “Our small but effective team of scientists, engineers and technicians volunteered to help with this urgent task and we were able to support, train, and, in some cases, lead parts of the testing and rework effort. We've made interesting connections outside the research community that will persist beyond the end of the Ventilator Challenge.” Dr Kristian Harder, STFC Particle Physics Department.
