'克兰菲尔德 Community' is a way of bringing together activity and expertise across the whole University to support and serve our students, staff, alumni, partners and clients in these unprecedented times. Highlights 和 good news stories can be found on social media by searching for #cranfieldcommunity.
克兰菲尔德’s experts in design, technology, engineering and science are working to rapidly create tools for health professionals that address the challenges of COVID-19. Current initiatives include the design of a new simple, low-cost Bag Valve Mask ventilator, a new paper-based test that can detect early signs of COVID-19 in wastewater 和 crash testing stretchers for the ambulance service.
Staff and students at Cranfield are working to make a difference to the wider community in a variety of ways. Staff at 克兰菲尔德 国防和安全 have donated personal protective equipment to local NHS surgeries 和 British Army reservists within the University will be reinforcing the national response to COVID-19. One of our PhD students, Lydia Frumosu, is volunteering in a hospital’s emergency department, having formerly worked in an NHS nuclear medicine unit.
Our 管理学院 is offering a number of free, online resources and webinars to help businesses of all sizes to navigate through current challenges, as well as a specialist programme to help SMEs triage 和 stabilise. Further information can be found on our 知识中心 我们 企业成长的应对方案平台.
We continue to deliver our courses to thousands of students following our rapid switch to online teaching, seminars and tutorials. We are supporting students who remain on campus by keeping open vital services and facilities 和 staying in regular contact with them.
