Trinity Challenge

Trinity Challenge:

A project by the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi (IIIT-Delhi), has won the joint second prize in Trinity Challenge’s second competition, on tackling the escalating threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

  • The Trinity Challenge (TTC) is a charity supporting the creation of data-driven solutions to help protect against global health threats.
  • It is a partnership of over 40 leading global organizations across the private, public, and social sectors.
  • TC partners are united by the common aim of using data and advanced analytics to create inclusive innovations and build a world that’s better prepared for health emergencies.
  • To that purpose, TTC is launching, supporting, and funding public challenges.
  • It was launched in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which highlighted a global need to be better prepared to tackle healthcare emergencies.
  • The initial Challenge asked teams to deliver data-driven solutions to predict, respond to and recover from pandemics.
  • It awarded £5.7 million to teams that developed innovative tools and approaches for better pandemic preparedness and response.
  • Following the success of the first Trinity Challenge, the second Challenge – The Trinity Challenge on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), issues a call to the world’s best and brightest minds for data-driven solutions that will protect the power of antibiotics.
