The Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) in collaboration with University of Malawi-The Polytechnic, Malawi Innovation Hub (mHub), Rice360 & NEST360, the African Biomedical Engineering Consortium (ABEC), the UBORA consortium, and other collaborating partners will host the 2020 ABEC Design School with the theme Solving problems of Non-Communicable diseases through cross-cutting research and innovation. The tentative date for the 2020 ABEC Design school is the period from 23rd to 27th November (subject to change, for emergency due to COVID-19 pandemia).
This competition seeks innovative multidisciplinary ideas, overlapping engineering and medicine paradigms, from teams of undergraduate students mentored by lecturers or experts with postgraduate qualifications. The ideas should tackle global challenges associated with non-communicable diseases with an emphasis on problems affecting low- and middle-income countries. Sustainable solutions can only be developed if engineers engage collaboratively with those at the forefront of delivering healthcare.
