RAEng Global Survey on the International Engineering Response to COVID-19

Dear HIFA Colleagues,

I hope that you are well.

I have been asked by The Royal Academy of Engineering, UK (RAEng) to bring their survey to your attention. Even if you are not an engineer, it is likely that you will have colleagues who are. RAEng are conducting this survey to improve their understanding of how engineers across the world are responding to COVID-19.

Here is the link:

If you would submit your response to the survey by 3rd July 2020 that would be most helpful. Thank you.

Best wishes,

Len Cornish
