Longitude Prize

£10m to conserve antibiotics for future generations

Thursday 24th September

18:00-20:00, Life Sciences Hub, 3 Assembly Square, Cardiff. Wales. CF10 4PL

Refreshments will be provided

Nesta and Life Sciences Hub Wales would like to invite you to come and find out more about the £10m Longitude Prize’s fascinating 300-year history, last year’s BBC Horizon vote and what you need to do to win the Prize.
The Longitude Prize is a historic challenge that aims to conserve antibiotics for future generation. The challenge is to develop a cheap, accurate, rapid and easy-to-use, point-of-care test that will identify when antibiotics are needed and, if they are, which ones to use.

The Longitude Prize was opened last year and will run until December 2019 or until a winner is found.
