About this Sprint Series

The COVID-19 Sprint Series seeks to address both established and emerging technical challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, particularly with the ability to facilitate and accelerate the "return to normal". Sponsored Sprints under this Series will seek innovations across broad ranging sectors including biomedical, healthcare, hospitality, travel, personal care and more.

 
 

 

WHAT ARE OPEN CHALLENGE SPRINTS?

Sprints are fast-tracked Innovation Challenges that connect Innovation Seekers and Solvers through a non-exclusive open innovation platform that combines strategic innovation discovery and commercial opportunity matching, through Opportunity Reports, Pitches, Showcases and Awards.
