Our vision at 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.
We are looking for technical, clinical and business innovations which must have the potential for wide scale global health impact and also allow for economic implementation and feasibility.
Our Student Challenges Competition offers you a key opportunity to showcase your 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 your 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.
Short listed candidates will present to a panel of global health experts at our annual Dragon’s Den style event, where they will be given the chance to win funding to create a prototype or visit a potential research site abroad to implement their project idea.
If you think you have the winning idea, visit our website and find out how to apply. If anything is unclear, do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving your entry.
