Community Deployment

Re-open your community with breakthrough COVID-19 testing solutions

XPRIZE Rapid COVID Testing - Accelerate innovation to make rapid testing accessible

Each day, the XPRIZE Rapid Covid Testing competition is moving us closer to faster, cheaper, and more accessible Covid testing solutions. In early 2021, winning teams will be announced and invited to collaborate with a “deployment site” where they will shift their lab-verified tests to real world settings for an additional award. Winning teams will be required to run at least 500 tests per week at a site for approximately one-to-two months.

What is a deployment site? It can be a school, nursing home, office, factory, etc.— essentially a site with more or less the same population that is looking to implement a robust testing and tracing program in order to safely re-open.

This is your chance to participate in the cutting edge of innovation, and help XPRIZE and its winning teams reopen the world. And you don’t need to be a scientist, PhD or engineer to get involved. All you need is a place that wants to re-open and is interested in getting its hands on some of the latest testing breakthroughs. If you do not have a place to reopen but instead a way to support teams and sites with the logistics of operating a testing site (e.g. test administration, data management, sample transport, etc.) you can help too.
