In answer to the global shortage in mechanical ventilators due to the #COVID19 pandemic, The Montreal General Hospital Foundation with the THE RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF THE MCGILL UNIVERSITY HEALTH CENTRE launches the Code Life Ventilator Challenge #CodeLifeChallenge powered by Agorize.
Open to everyone and all startups, the goal of this initiative is to design a low-cost, easy to build and easy to use ventilator that can serve the COVID patients, in an emergency timeframe.
Three finalists will share a cash prize of at least 200,000 CA$, and their designs will be available for free download to anyone who needs them, saving lives immediately.
The deadline to submit projects is March 31, 2020, 11:59 pm EST, so there is no time to lose.
