Better use of antibiotics - €1 million Horizon Prize !

Research & Innovation - Horizon Prizes - Better use of Antibiotics

The challenge is to develop a rapid test that will allow healthcare providers to distinguish at the point of care between patients with upper respiratory tract infections that require antibiotics and those that can be treated safely without antibiotics.
