The first competition—multi-pathogen detection and/or simple discrimination—opens on 30 August. It will offer up to £5m for collaborative projects to develop diagnostic tools for the condition. There will be £2.5m available for a second competition—advancing biomarker use in sepsis management—which opens on 26 September.
