Innovation In A Global Pandemic – The United Kingdom and Colorado Rising to the Challenge

Thursday, Sep 17, 2020

COVID-19 has forced all of us to re-examine the ways in which we work, whether it’s transitioning to virtual platforms for your day-to-day interactions or reconfiguring your business to respond to the needs of the pandemic. Join the UK Government and the City of Denver for a wide-ranging conversation with British and Colorado industries and institutions who have adapted their technologies to help fight COVID-19. We’ll hear from a variety of voices, including innovative British and Colorado companies involved in developing technology to track cases, researchers who are partnering with the US government on high performance computing capabilities, and from government officials who utilized these products and research to develop policy responses. We’ll discuss how these leaders quickly pivoted in the face of an international health crisis, what they learned, and how they might use these technologies to address future global challenges. Most importantly, we’ll also discuss opportunities for you to partner with leading UK institutions and companies driving this change to ensure you can be part of the global response going forward.

Panelists will include:

  • The Colorado Governor’s COVID Response Team (Eric Drummond)
  • British technology companies involved in COVID tracking & other tech responses. (likely representatives from Zoe and Benevolent)
  • A representative from the UK’s Supercomputing Computing Centre (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Campus)
  • A representative from the Alan Turing Institute COVID-19 Team (Project Odysseus)
  • Denver health and technology companies involved in the COVID-19 Response (likely a representative from Burst IQ and possibly others)
