What were the Discovery Awards?

The Discovery Awards were initial grants to allow teams to develop and test their prototype surgical modules. Grantees will be expected to utilise their grant to develop an initial prototype and self-assessment framework. The Challenge’s Judging Panel selected the 10 teams to receive Discovery Awards.
