03 June, 2020 by HEC Media in
The Malawi-Liverpool Wellcome Trust Science For All (Sci40) initiative is a programme that aims at promoting careers in clinical and biomedical sciences, targeting primary, secondary and tertiary education students. In partnership with the MLW Science Translation team, the initiative is introducing a health innovation competition for tertiary education students with the aim to raise the level of translational science priority and belief, as well as to stimulate students’ passion for health innovation.
The competition is seeking multidisciplinary teams to produce health innovations relevant to Malawi in the form of digital tools or physical products. Once a winning team is identified, they will work together with the MLW Science Translation team
and its partners, including the host institution to further the development of the device or product.
The award can include expert advice support, project funding support as well as identifying potential key partners or external funding opportunities. The competition is initially open to students from the College of Medicine (CoM), Malawi University of Science
and Technology (MUST) and the Malawi Polytechnic, but will be extended to other institutions in future editions.
Applications open on 15th June 2020 and close on 6th July 2020. Download the full advert below:
