MTE 2021 SPECIAL EDITION
The 2nd COVID-19 International Innovation Awards
COVID-19 pandemic has affected more than 200 countries and territories in the world. More than 2 million deaths have been registered since the start of December 2020. The nature of the crisis is unprecedented: beyond the short-term repeated health and economic shocks, the drawn-out impacts on human resources, productivity and behavior may be long-lasting. The greater part of the world’s population has encountered a lockdown with strong containment measures. Governments have been operating in a context of radical uncertainty and confronted with difﬁcult trade-offs given the health, economic and social challenges it raises. It has shaken the world, setting in motion waves of change with a wide scope of possible trajectories.
MTE 2021 Special Edition – The 2nd COVID-19 International Innovation Awards (a virtual event) is scheduled to return in June 2021. The awards are created to acknowledge and celebrate all innovations in response to COVID-19. We believe that innovations – existing and new – across various categories can be instrumental in the response and recovery efforts globally. Together we are stronger.
