  • Can I choose my team members?

  • Are polytechnic students permitted?

  • Are non-students or healthcare professionals permitted to participate?

While we recognize that many healthcare professionals are deeply involved in antimicrobial stewardship throughout the healthcare delivery system, the Innovate4AMR competition is primarily aimed at engaging students, ideally working across disciplinary boundaries, as part of the next generation of future leaders in antimicrobial stewardship. As such, we ask that teams be exclusively made of students. However, you are welcome to encourage any students you know to participate in the competition, and to mentor them if you have time!
