Description:

Request a Grant Writer

In-kind grants of credits and technical support to USA, Canada, and International research institutions, consortia, and private entities for research related to COVID-19/Coronavirus. Grants are intended to assist with the development of point-of-care diagnostic (testing that can be done at home or at a clinic with same-day results) and other diagnostic techniques. Eligible applicants use AWS to accelerate research, innovation, and development to speed the collective understanding and detection of COVID-19 and other innovate diagnostic solutions to mitigate future infectious disease outbreaks.

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Diagnostic Development Initiative (DDI) provides support for innovation in rapid and accurate patient testing for 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and other diagnostic solutions to mitigate future outbreaks. Accurate testing and diagnosis at point-of-care or regional locations for patients with COVID-19 is critical to early intervention and treatment. AWS is offering technical support and providing AWS promotional credits to support the use of AWS services to advance diagnostic research for selected institutions and companies.

AWS approves applications based on factors such as applicability of research to the development of diagnostic tools and techniques for reliable, more accurate and economical testing for COVID-19; stage of diagnostic research; potential to disseminate the results and data through sharing a pipeline or software; succinctly defined milestones; the applicability of AWS services and support within the project scope; and value of promotional credits requested suited to the scope of the project (as evidenced by a Simple Monthly Calculator link to substantiate the promotional credits desired). Given the need, the emphasis initially will be on COVID-19, but we will also consider other infectious disease diagnostic projects.
