The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged UK society in many ways. The Academy has recognised the contributions that the engineering community has made in helping society address those challenges by making a number of President’s Special Awards for Pandemic Service.
These awards, presented in August 2020, represent the UK engineering community who have contributed to helping address the challenges of the pandemic, across all technical specialities, disciplines and career stages.
These are exceptional examples of engineering in the service of society in the context of pandemic challenges - from those whose service kept essential services and infrastructure effective in unprecedented circumstances, to those who helped protect the NHS. We acknowledge projects, teams and organisations, as well as individuals.
