That contract was awarded a year ago and worth £300,000.

Giulio Saggese, Deputy Head of Development and Operations, at the UKHSA, commented, “We worked in collaboration with Burendo to create a multi-threat dashboard which is instrumental in helping us to understand the infectious disease landscape. Burendo delivered a fantastic piece of work, and we are thrilled to be working with the team again. We’re looking forward to growing our partnership and seeing what more we can achieve together.”
