Video: What does our deadline extension mean for competing teams?

The Longitude Prize interviewed three teams, WeInnovateBiosolutions in India, the University of Plymouth in England and Astrego Diagnostics in Sweden, about their reactions to the Longitude Prize deadline extension. Find out about their work, why we are extending the deadline and how we plan to go forward in supporting teams.

As announced last week in the Telegraph and today by Chief Medical Officer, Dame, Sally Davies, at the AMR Call to Action meeting in Accra, Ghana, the Longitude Prize team is extending its deadline to at least December 2020. You can also read our blog about the extension here.
