Longitude Prize 2014: Antibiotic Action call for contributors!

 The 2014 Longitude Prize asked for a public vote on which of six challenges for the 21st century should receive a prize of £10 million to fund research work.


The winner was the proposal to help prevent the rise in antibiotic resistance within 5 years by finding a way to create a cheap, accurate, rapid and easy-to-use point of care test kit for bacterial infections.

To aid deliberations in advance of the call, The Longitude Prize Committee has announced an open call through to invite inventors, innovators and academics to help shape the criteria of the Longitude Prize for antibiotics.

Antibiotic Action encourages all to respond - we want to help the committee formulate a truly effective Prize.  You can contribute to the open review, which closes on 10 August 2014 by clicking here.
