Will was also joined our Engineering Director, Jack Dunkley, to present to students at Dulwich college about the type of work that engineers do as well as the wide variety of specialisms and industries this applies to, encouraging the students to explore careers in engineering design.
In light of World Engineering Day, HD set the pupils at Oakridge Primary School the challenge of designing a new and innovative precious object transportation method. It was great to see such enthusiasm and so many innovative concepts. Our chosen winner included a backup plan as part of their concept because designs aren’t always right first time!
We finished the conference season with a trip to Edinburgh for DDL (Drug Delivery To The Lungs) 2022 where the HD team had a great few days at the conference connecting with clients, suppliers and experts about the latest research, innovation and trends in the respiratory drug delivery space.
According to the Trussel Trust, 95% of foodbanks said increase in demand was due to the rise in the cost of living. There are signs that a wider range of the population is resorting to using food banks including social workers, public sector workers, teachers and people in employment more generally. Within the context of high inflation and energy costs, charities anticipate demand for food banks will rise further. Please take a look at helping your local foodbank heading into the New Year.
Needless to say, 2022 has been a busy one filled with new products and devices developed as well as new partnerships established. Q1 of 2023 is already looking exciting with at least 2 new product launches, a new team member and more international travel – not to mention the rest of the year!
