Over the past months, the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has developed into a public health emergency of international scale and impact. Its rapid escalation has had a significant impact on various medical, economic and social dimensions, and resulted in a series of yet unsolved collateral issues – which restrain governments and health authorities’ ability to monitor and control the spread of the virus.

In an effort to channel the immense potential of universities to find solution for such problems, Global Grad Show invites its community of university graduates, undergraduates and professors from all disciplines, academic institutions and countries to submit proposals to help mitigate COVID-19’s collateral issues.

A team of health professionals, innovation and technology specialists will support the selection and development of chosen projects. Any selected proposal will be supported through an acceleration programme, and may be further funded to be produced and distributed at scale. A selected proposal will also receive an academic award in the form of a scholarship (covering the annual tuition fee of the selected student or establishing a research scholarship of equivalent value for the department of the selected professor).

The proposals must address collateral issues related to COVID-19. Examples include:

– improving the efficiency of self-quarantine

– increase treatment capacity and screening methods

– mitigate contagious behaviors individually and within groups

– enable collaborative efforts amongst private and public sectors

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

Interested applicants should work individually or in teams, identify a problem related to COVID-19 and propose solutions.

Applications, now open, will require the description of the problem, the solution and the plan to implement it.

Proposals should be submitted by April 2 and any selected project will be contacted by 16th April.
