The Discovery Awards are small seed grants to help teams and individuals further develop their ideas for the Longitude Prize.
This latest round of seed funding is provided by BIRAC (a public sector company of the Government of India) and is open exclusively to teams based in India. The aim is to help registered teams to move their ideas forward, as well as to broaden the range of innovators competing for the Prize by encouraging new teams to enter the race.
The first two rounds of the Discovery Awards were open to teams around the world; you can find out more and read about our previous winners here.
We hope to provide further funding for teams worldwide at a later date; keep an eye on our website or sign up to our newsletter (at the bottom of this page) to be first to know about future announcements.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
