Paul Wilkins, Sagentia managing director, said: “This year has seen exceptional effort from many Cambridge science and technology companies, and the local supply chain, to create rapid and innovative solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Sponsoring the Covid-19 Response category promises to reveal some ground-breaking rapid innovations in hospital equipment, diagnostics, virology, patient monitoring, data analysis and more.
“Having been involved in the UK Ventilator Challenge , our team of engineers and scientists understand first-hand what has gone into these rapid medical developments that aim to solve part of the multi-faceted global problem.
“We’re looking forward to seeing the broad array of technologies Cambridge’s best have been able to develop in extreme circumstances and timescales.”
