We're thrilled to announce a new round of Discovery Awards seed funding, funded by BIRAC (a public sector company of the Government of India), open exclusively to teams based in India. The Discovery Awards are small seed grants to help teams and individuals further develop their ideas for the Longitude Prize. The aim is to help teams move their ideas forward, as well as enabling new innovators to enter the race.
Antibiotic Resistance is one of the biggest challenges facing us today. Bacteria are evolving to become resistant to the antibiotics we have successfully used for decades to treat infections. Longitude Prize is looking to help tackle the problem with a £10 million prize fund for a diagnostic tool that can rule out antibiotic use or help identify an effective antibiotic to treat a patient. Register now and help to change the world.
