The vision at Institute of Global Health Innovation (IGHI) is to support the identification, development and widespread diffusion of healthcare innovation and in doing so to sustainably reduce global health inequalities across the globe.
The Student Challenges Competition offers students a key opportunity to showcase their research idea and to win prize money of up to £5,000 to develop this further. Runners-up prizes will also be awarded.
This year, it is also compulsory for all applications to be accompanied by a 2-3 minute promotional video illustrating the project idea and how it works.
As part of the Audience Choice Award, £500 is up for grabs to shortlisted candidates for those who produce the best video. The winners will be announced at the Dragon’s Den event with the rest of the prizes.
The competition is open to all UG & PG students based in the UK and can be on any aspect of global health innovation.
