Application is open for XPRIZE Next-Gen- Mask challenge 2020 where the best idea of alternative for face masks that are readily accessible and affordable, functional for our everyday lives will win 1million
Masks are effective in slowing and preventing the spread of COVID-19 and are ill-fitting, uncomfortable, not breathable, and the most effective masks are often unavailable or expensive. The XPRIZE Next-Gen Mask Challenge will aid in the fight against COVID-19 by enhancing an effective solution: face masks. The next generation of masks will redefine the norm of mask-wearing behavior and help sustain crucial preventive health measures.
