Grand Challenges Explorations Round 22 (Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation)

Deadline: 13 November 2018

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Grand Challenges Explorations (GCE) supports hundreds of early-stage projects – including many ideas that have never before been tested – and innovators from a wide range of disciplines and regions.

The GCE initiative funds innovative ideas that could lead to new vaccines, diagnostics, drugs, and other technologies targeting diseases that claim millions of lives every year, as well as improvements and innovations in agriculture development and other priority areas of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In the twenty-second round of Grand Challenges Explorations, proposals were solicited that target the following challenges:

  • Increasing Demand for Vaccination Services
  • New Approaches for Manufacturing Gut Microbial Biotherapeutics
  • Innovation for WASH in Urban Settings
  • New Approaches for Strategic Prioritization of Agricultural Development Policies
  • Tools and Technologies for Broad-Scale Pest and Disease Surveillance of Crop Plants in Low-Income Countries
  • Innovations Driving Programmatic Performance in Immunization: Service Experience and Data Use + Measurement

GCE is open to both foreign and domestic organizations, including non-profit organizations, for-profit companies, international organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions.

The amount awarded is up to 100,000 USD

Deadline: 13 November 2018
