Better Use of Antibiotics Prize

The "Better Use of Antibiotics" €1 million prize addresses the issue of the unnecessary use of antibiotics, which is contributing to the growing problem of antibiotic resistance. The challenge is to develop a rapid test that will allow healthcare providers to distinguish at the point of care between patients with upper respiratory tract infections that require antibiotics and those that can be treated safely without antibiotics.

The contest will run until the end of 2016. Contestants will be able to submit their entries from 10 March 2015 until 17 August 2016. The rules of contest are available online.
