COVID-19 Challenge Winning Solutions To Be Announced on May 8

As part of the COVID-19 Challenge, Vale has been reviewing the solutions that have been submitted to identify the ones to receive the company’s financial support to tackle the coronavirus. In total 1,858 solutions have been submitted to the initiative launched by Vale with our supporters Don Duval (NORCAT) Dr. Ken Jenkins (Horizon Occupational Health Solutions supported by Telus Health), UHN and MaRS. Due to the high number of submissions, the final date for disclosing the results was postponed to May 8. During this period, Vale may contact the proposing institutions to request additional documentation from the registration e-mail.

The purpose of this challenge is to become a catalyst for solutions that minimize the impacts of COVID-19 on our society through open innovation. Support will be provided through funding or by connecting partners to enable implementation of such solutions within 15 days. The investment will be up to USD $1 million.
