Student pitching idea

Searching for the next generation of global health innovators

Do you have a unique idea for a new product or research project in global health?

Our annual Health Innovation Prize could help transform that idea into reality.

Formerly known as the Student Challenges Competition, IGHI's Health Innovation Prize offers UK university students the opportunity to showcase their research and to win £10,000 towards funding their global health project.  

We welcome applications from all UK-based university students. Projects can cover any aspect of global health innovation, such as improving hygiene or developing diagnostic tools for use in remote areas. Each year, IGHI hosts a Dragon’s Den-style event to find the winner where the finalists for the competition are invited to pitch their idea to our judges. 

Applications for IGHI's Health Innovation Prize are now closed. Sign up to this year's final on 23 March here.
