Answering Solvers’ questions

Q: I work for an academic or a research institute. Do I need a commercial partner in place, to participate in Phase 1 of the Competition?

A: No; academic or purely research organizations are welcome to submit applications for Phase 1 of the Competition without a partner in place. However, in order to be eligible to participate in Phase 2 and 3, such organizations will need to provide evidence of support and commitment from a partner organization with the requisite experience and expertise (eg commercialization, manufacturing). A signed letter of commitment or similar legally binding document is acceptable to provide such evidence; if available this can be uploaded as part of your Phase 1 application, visit for more information.

Q: Can I submit supplemental materials to support my application?

A: Yes. Your application should include as much detail as possible, and you are welcome to upload additional documents to the system at the end of the submission process, in order to support your application.

Q: What are the deadlines for submitting my application?
