The projects below are open for Cambridge students only.
Project 19 – Market Research for COVID-19 diagnostic tests
Altru Institute, a New York and Swiss based not-for profit think-tank, is launching a Global Virus Project which is addressing the COVID-19 challenge and will work to eliminate the threat of pandemics in the future. Part of their approach is to develop landscape reports on diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. These reports enable technologies to gain exposure to philanthropists, impact investors, scientists and other stakeholders to accelerate their development. Particularly, the most promising technologies will be showcased through C-suite executive interviews and highlighted on Altru Institute’s collaborative platform. This will provide a starting point for collaboration as there is a mechanism to understand the technologies and projects that have the greatest prospect of addressing this challenge. CCN will be assisting the client by conducting market research on the COVID-19 diagnostic test industry and interviewing CEOs of the pharmaceutical companies involved.
APPLICATIONS OPEN: 1st of May, 10pm.
