Platform technologies – tools, techniques, and instruments that enable entirely novel approaches for scientific investigation across a broad range of disciplines – have captured a significant fraction of all the science Nobel Prizes in the last 10 years. This Challenge seeks to identify exceptional ideas for revolutionary new platform technologies (from across the full breadth of science, technology, engineering, and math) that could lead to breakthrough advances in the broadly defined life sciences.
In addition to the guaranteed monetary award for this Challenge, Solvers may be provided with multiple types of opportunities to publicize their submissions with other potential funders, if they so choose. The Seekers for this Challenge are Burroughs Welcome Fund, The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, The John Templeton Foundation, The Kavli Foundation, Research Corporation for Science Advancement, and W. M. Keck Foundation.
A webinar about this Challenge is now available that includes comments from Dr. Robbie Barbero of the US White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and Maria Pelligrini of the W. M. Keck Foundation. The video can be viewed at: https://innocentiveevents.webex.com/innocentiveevents/lsr.php?AT=pb&SP=EC&rID=7807317&rKey=38ee2a5df8362672
