IFIA President Alireza Rastegar invites inventors and innovators from all the world to take part in the “inventions vs coronavirus” contest
Today, humanity is facing a world crisis due to the spread of the Coronavirus and this is a historical conjuncture where each one of us must try to find solutions depending on their field and skills. In this exceptional period, many inventors are inventing new technologies and inventions related to COVID-19 and this can be seen very clearly in many countries. So, to honor those individual inventors, innovative companies, universities, and scientific research centers, who found concrete solutions to fight against the spread of COVID-19, IFIA organized the “Inventions VS Corona” contest against this virus. It is a valuable point to know that participation in this competition is free and the winners will receive multiple awards. Besides, projects will receive the necessary support to reach the global market through the worldwide network of IFIA.
