Background Pattern
A Platform for Solutions

XPRIZE is well known as the world’s leader in developing moonshot solutions using the power of prizes and the genius of the crowd. Rooted in this deep experience, the Pandemic Alliance is a framework for developing COVID-19 solutions via the following platforms:

Screenshot of Data Exchange Platform

  • Exchange - Our digital collaboration platform, which facilitates match-making between partners so we can leverage the network of Alliance Partners to contribute their resources, data and expertise to drive the latest COVID-19 breakthroughs.
  • Data Collaborative - The Exchange plugs directly into the XPRIZE Data Collaborative platform, and allows data to be shared and analyzed via the latest advancements in Machine Learning and AI, while guaranteeing privacy, traceability, and transparency. As a neutral third-party, XPRIZE is uniquely positioned to convene contributors from both the private and public sectors. This resource serves as the backbone for Alliance efforts to generate new data-driven insights and develop technologies that predict, diagnose and treat COVID-19 faster and more efficiently.

A Better Tomorrow

Even after we solve the current COVID-19 crisis, the threat of global pandemics remains one of many existential threats to humanity. We need to figure out how to engineer a more resilient society. This Alliance community serves as an antibody against threats to our future – ready to identify, incubate and resource technologies that future-proof our society.
