In an open letter to industry and the government, Drive System Design has proposed an alternative solution to the UK furlough scheme that aims to boost UK plc at no additional cost. There are currently thousands of furloughed engineers unable to contribute as they would like to, which means the country is losing hundreds, if not thousands, of work-years of research and development that could benefit the UK after this crisis. Drive System Design is proposing that these engineers are mobilised to work on collaborative projects and develop new innovations, providing the UK with a competitive advantage post Covid-19. We are asking for support for the scheme from the industry and government funding bodies.
Please can you offer your support?
