Covid-19 Taskforce

The COVID-19 Taskforce is formed of members from across the Institution’s special interest groups and regions who can provide specialist input and advice on subjects where the impact of COVID-19 can be reduced through engineering applications.


The taskforce aims to:

  1. Provide engineering solutions and support to UK governments and public health organisations.
  2. Investigate training opportunities for members and the wider engineering committee.
  3. Work with government, industry and business to identify where future challenges may occur.

The Group is a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' Technical Strategy Board, chaired by Past President Joe McGeough.
