Following our Operation Warp Speed conference in Washington, D.C., in November 2022, 1Day Sooner began writing our “Operation Warp Speed 2.0” white paper. The paper outlines policy recommendations for how best to institutionalize the successes of the original Warp Speed — the government program that greatly accelerated Covid-19 vaccine development and deployment — to similarly accelerate medical countermeasures against future outbreaks as well as other medical products of high social value. In particular, the paper focuses on how the lessons of OWS can be applied to Project NextGen, the current administration’s $5 billion policy suite designed to continue the fight against the coronavirus.
