The Ventilator Challenge – TTP’s story about innovating at speed (a Cambridge Network event)

Brought to you by Cambridge Network

Concerned about shortfall in hospital equipment, The Government’s Ventilator Challenge aimed to provide thousands of ventilators to hospitals as the pandemic escalated. TTP will share with us their role in the challenge, developing a new, rapidly manufacturable ventilator, CoVent in just five weeks.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

In this webinar we’ll hear about the challenges of inventing at speed.  These included:

  • responding to Government requirements
  • managing risk
  • organising the team
  • establishing supply chains
  • rapid prototype iteration and regulation

all of which had their own challenges.

This is your chance to find out how TTP got involved with the challenge, what it involved for the team and what was learnt in responding to this unique situation. Several UK companies produced 14,000 ventilators in just three months, to end of July, accounting for over a half of all the ventilators now available to the NHS frontline.

We welcome questions to the speakers ahead of the event, please submit your question on the registration form, or if you prefer, email them to


  • Douglas Bradshaw, Head of Medical Devices
  • Edd Stone, Life Science Consultant
  • Dan Strange, Medical Devices Consultant
