MEDRC Announce Extension to Oman Humanitarian Desalination Challenge

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the deadline for applications for the Oman Humanitarian Desalination Challenge has been extended to May 31, 2020.

We recognize that researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs across the world are experiencing great difficulties due to the Covid 19 crisis. Many laboratories and academic institutions are closed or access has been severely restricted causing mass disruption to research continuity and collaboration. We hope that this extension offers potential competitors the additional time needed to apply to compete in the Oman Humanitarian Desalination Challenge.” Said Ciaran O Cuinn, MEDRC Center Director.

Due to the registration extension MEDRC will now announce the list of authorized competitors on June 11 instead of April 6 as previously advertised. MEDRC will continue to monitor events related to Covid19, but can confirm no other changes to the project timeline have been made at this stage.

Interested candidates are invited to register online to compete through the Challenge website
