Global Grad Show has launched an Open Call for solutions to the collateral issues of COVID-19. University students and professor, from all disciplines, academic institutions and countries, are invited to register their interest and ideas by April 2.
The health implications of Novel Coronavirus impose a series of unsolved challenges to governments, communities and people, deterring health authorities' ability to control the spread of the virus. Global Grad Show invites graduates, undergraduates and professors from all disciplines, academic institutions and countries to submit solutions to the collateral issues of COVID-19.
The proposals must identify and address a critical issue surrounding COVID-19, which can range from home quarantine to decontamination of public areas, to enhanced patientscreening methods and statistical disease-prediction models.
Submissions will be assessed by a panel of experts in innovation and any selected proposal will be supported through an acceleration programme, including the possibility to be produced and distributed at scale.
