The race to overcome weaknesses in the cold-chain for vaccine transport and storage is on! Many people in tropical and developing countries cannot benefit from life-saving vaccines because these vaccines are damaged during transport and storage. Many vaccines need to be kept at a cool and stable temperature to remain effective and this is difficult to ensure in these regions.

The European Commission is offering a EUR 2 million prize for innovations which can solve this global health problem.

No particular approach is prescribed. Solutions may include alternative ways of formulating, preserving or transporting vaccines. Whichever solution responds best to the competition criteria will win.

Take part in the competition and win this prestigious prize – the first of its kind!

How to apply

If you are established as a legal entity in the EU or in a country associated with the 7th Research Framework Programme you can compete for this prize.

The competition is open from 16 April 2012 until 3 September 2013.

You can present your application in the way which you consider best satisfies the competition criteria.

But you will also need to provide a summary of no more than 20 pages for which we will provide a standard template soon.
