Submission for the Technology Challenge has closed. We sincerely thank you all for the many submitted entries showcasing interesting and innovative proposals, which align with the given problem statement for the Challenge.

We seek to inform all shortlisted teams latest by the first week of January 2018. Each shortlisted team will go on stage to present their proposals on the 2nd day of the Conference on 2 February 2018, to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and audience of policymakers, researchers, and practitioners. The judges will evaluate each proposal based upon the following:

  • Health / Wellness Impact
  • Quality of Innovation
  • Presentation

Further details will be sent to each shortlisted team. We seek your understanding that all decisions of the organisers and judges with respect to the shortlisting and awarding processes are final, and no further correspondence will be given by the organisers and/or judges.
