Face Mask Challenge update

The SBRI Centre has had a fantastic response for our Face Mask Challenge. The applications have really highlighted the innovative and adaptive nature of business and academia in the fight against Covid-19. The challenge wants improve mask fit, for all the different face shapes and sizes of our clinical staff, whilst also hoping to improve the patient experience and reducing the impact on the environment. The new innovative face mask designs will be to a high standard (FFP3) to ensure the safety of our staff and patients

The project in collaboration with Welsh Government and NHS Wales has now closed for applications and we are pleased to announce 6 suppliers have been awarded contracts to develop and shape their exciting solutions.

We are looking forward to co-creating these solutions over the next few months.  Keep your eyes peeled for our updates and follow us on Twitter @SBRICOE
